Flowers are blooming later this year than usual. Today is the last day of May and spring is just in full bloom. Transition is a large part of what is going on in our family right now. My oldest child is graduating from high school in a few weeks and my mother in law is experiencing the last hours of her life. Her sons and family have been by her side for days as she is peaceful and comfortable. She has lived a long, good life with many many people who love her.
