Lavender reminds me of ....
my sister who uses it for her headaches
my sister-in- law who gave me some cream and a sachet as a gift
my front flower bed that needs to be weeded
the dark purple version my parents had in their backyard with huge bumble bees
my grandmother who wore a lavender colored dress and hat to my wedding when she was 86 years old. When I was a young girl, she would come and visit with us (she lived in Florida - we lived in New York), Every single morning - she would always ... always ... have her morning devotion time and prayer time. If I happened to be up - she would ask me to join her.
What a wonderful strong faith she had. I miss her. She died in 1993 at the age of 91.
When I am reminded of her - I am blessed by the legacy of faith that came through her to me.
I will see her again some day.
I hope there are soft warm hugs and sweet wonderful fragrances in heaven!
