Today, like every day for the last 4 years, my father picked a fresh flower from his garden and took it to my mother. This time I decided to go with him to see her. And as he placed the flower on her grave, he said, “I just wish I had picked her a fresh flower every day when she was alive.” MMT

You made me cry

I had tears in my eyes the second after reading this. It's absolutley beautiful in a heart breaking kind of way.

Made me cry to, But it also reminds me of the day of my grandfathers funeral. I walked my grandmother up to the casket, and she kissed him, and I thought to myself, WOW that was the only time I had ever seen her kiss him, I wish she kissed him like that everyday. So I make it a point to kiss my husband and kids everyday..

My mom died 4 years ago... I went over to hug my Dad the other day just cause he's alive and in my life and I love him. It kind of baffled him but that's okay.

This made me cry also.

almost made me cry too... but i m at the office

my grandfather gave my grandmother flowers from the garden whenever they were in bloom, and the year that she died there was a late bloom on the roses- her favorite. The day that she died he gave her the last flower, and her last words were thanking him and talking about how pretty the flower was. She died almost 2 years ago and he still has the flower- albeit dried up now- in its vase. It made me tear up remembering her.
