Silently, one by one, in the infinite meadows of Heaven,

Blossom the lovely stars, the forget-me-nots of the angels.

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

 Whenever it was vital that I remembered something when I was a child my mother would always tie a knot in my hanky as a gentle reminder.  This is a tribute to my loving mother.  A true angel – never to be forgotten.

 Her gentle touch of kindness caresses me each time I press a hanky to my cheek or wipe a tear from my eye. Every spring I celebrate as forget-me-not’s bloom and I see the blue of my mother’s eyes again.
