I wanted to post a photo of me right away because I wanted friends to see that I'm still vertical and enjoying life. I'm not moving too quickly yet and the surgery was major but here's to three weeks later being out of the house and on a small road trip to Lake Rabun! Usually, [...]
Before Mom moved out of her house, the house where my brother and I grew up, I was able to dig up a few of her day lilies and replant them at the cottage. She knew the name of each one and loved to walk the hundreds she had planted in beds in her backyard. [...]
