very nice. a fitting tribute to your mom. good writing.
I loved it that the seed catalogue arrived in the mail - A clever 'light bulb' moment. (No pun intended with 'bulb' there!)
I felt the touch and legacy of Mama, continue on and as someone who also gets excited at the sight of any gardening magazine, I really enjoyed your story. Thank you.

Just wonderful, Glynis!
Real feeling.

I got a catch in my throat on this line "to be sure that these plants will say everything that I want my mama to hear."

Love the way you wrote Tom, too.

Great job. :)
Well writen. Good job.

I needed this! Brought my gramma back for a while. She was an angel, you know...
If this isn't a winner, I'll eat my hat! I love tributes like this and it touched some very tender chords in my own heart. You write effortlessly but beautifully. I loved your entry!
I was touched by this beautifully written story. And love the title, too. Excellent!

I enjoyed this piece. Recently, I attended a funeral and the family passed out packets of seeds for us to plant something in their loved one's memory. Good work.

I like the way you've linked a couple's natural interaction with reflections on pain and the hope in Christ that does not disappoint us. Well done.
