I stopped writing for a while and I have to tell you why.
I thought 2014 has been my best year. I got married in September and we were all very happy and excited.
Then something terrible happened. My mother passed away shortly before Christmas. It was very difficult for me. I think it is always hard to deal with death in the family, but it’s harder to deal with it during holidays. I felt terrible because everybody else celebrated Christmas and I was grieving. I was desperately sad and lonely.
I realized that no one loves you like a mother and that she won’t call me or hug me anymore. My birthdays will be sad, since we have birthday on the same day. But I am happy that she was there on my wedding day. I am a lucky person to have a mother like her.
Then I remembered that gardening could help me get happier.
So I started to work in my garden. I have removed winter mulch, planted veggies, divided perennials, ordered bulbs and seeds.The temperatures are still unpredictable, so I am being challenged. Strong winds and heavy weather are not ideal for gardening, so I have to be flexible about my transplanting and direct sowing dates.
Wake up your garden!
