No one in my family owned up to planting this flower at my parents grave. After many discussions we reached a conclusion that it was the work of someone outside the family. An act of kindness from a stranger.
Since all they left us was a lone, and the tab for two services--as well the cost of the gravestone--it took a stranger to remind us that through it all love and forgiveness were the most important factors to focus on. Besides, how much time and money can one really spend in therapy? Resentment is like picking up hot coals from a fire to throw at the one we resent. We only really hurt ourselves. Forgive, but never forget. A tricky balancing act.

    Beautifully photographed. This headstone stands out so well against the starkness of the dark and footprints in the snow. Let time help you in the healing process..

    .Beautiful capture in the snow and the headstone stands out clearly in the light from the dark background. It might have been an angel who placed the flowers there as a reminder that forgiveness and the ability to be a positive influence to inspire others regardless of an imperfect world is the best therapy in life!
