Mom always loved yellow and orange. I was lucky to find these flowers -- just what I wanted!
Hawaii Veterans Memorial Cemetery is unique in its own way. It holds little interest in its presentation but what is the most interesting here, I have found, is the families! Obviously Mother's Day was a big thing this year.
I was grateful that these families were laughing so loudly -- it helped me not to cry, as much. I thought of going over to them and thanking them but I figured they would think me crazy so I didn't. Now I wish I did. They had the right attitude -- I'm just not "there" yet.
Hawaii has beautiful cemeteries. Wait until this weekend! Memorial Day brings flags, flower lei, and people sharing love and memories.
I love my home. Visit a cemetery this weekend, military or otherwise. Remember them and celebrate their lives!
