Which is one of the reasons we got a fake tree. Grandma was living with us and was allergic to pine. This solved the problem and I liked the fact we could use the tree again and again and not sacrifice a living tree every year.

I didn’t really want a church wedding with all the fripperies, but I did it anyway. Not for me, but for my mother. She’d had a simple, plain wedding and really in her heart wanted the fancy one. So I set aside my desires to give her what she wanted. My wedding was my gift to her, not myself. Oh, the marriage only lasted 8 1/2 years, and I’ve been happily divorced 36 years, but I’m glad I gave mom that moment of glitz she wanted. She and dad passed on in 1995, and I still miss them every day. I’m glad I have those small moments of happiness to remember them by.

Instead of giving her gifts or no gifts at all, give her flowers. It’s so nice to get flowers and they fade with time and can be tossed to make room for more flowers. They can even be the plantable variety she can add to her garden.
Even the smallest cat contains a mountain of love for their human.
