I took this photo last year in Santa Cruz, at the memorial for Alex. I want to go back to that beautiful garden this year and take new photos. Gone one year, RIP Alexander. May was always a busy month of celebrations for us with John's birthday, Lynley's birthday, and Mother's Day. Now it is more a time of remembrance, days gone by with little snippets of school, birthday parties, artwork, and young voices. We never know what life has ahead so make the most of THIS day. Stop and smell the flowers.
