✨Welcome to #SpillTheTeaWednesday! ✨ Today's theme is, Honor a Memory. This particular Spill the Tea #Wednesday just happens to be the 20th Anniversary of my mother’s passing from lung cancer. I know many #friends who have lost loved ones and loss is never easy regardless of the cause. The pain has faded, but I still miss my mother even twenty years later. She was someone I admired as a strong, #confident, self-made woman.

My mother owned a candle making #business and she created so many different styles of beautiful candles up until her passing. I kept many of her #candles and remember her every time I pass her #creations that are displayed throughout our house. Each one triggers a happy #memory of an event or an idea that she wanted to convey through her work.After my mother died, I was inspired to write a #poem in her memory and displayed it in a #beautiful frame surrounded by roses from her funeral. Writing the poem helped me #heal and gave me some closure during that difficult time.

To remember someone you miss, try #writing a poem, displaying a picture, or that special something that reminds you of the happier times you shared with them. It will give you #comfort and #honor their memory.
