August just seems to be a tough month sometimes for my family and especially my folks. I'm not real great at expressing myself in person, so I'm trying to think of something special to remember my sister by this August. I want to do something for my Mom and not be afraid that it will just bring sadness up...my intent is to bring the joy of remembrance.
My sister loved pretty things ~ all things beautiful. She loved riding a fast horse with her hair blowing in the wind. She loved to sketch, she loved to laugh and visit and people were more important than things. She would give anything away and had a heart of compassion.
I was thinking a nice meal served on real china, as she always loved to set a beautiful table. Candles, wine glasses with sparkling juice, etc. Now to remember some of her favorite meals...Maybe we could sit outside and sketch something on our sketch paper...
Any thoughts? Any ideas how to do a little something so a day that none of us forget will not go by seemingly unnoticed with unsaid words?
I'd appreciate some ideas if you have any.
