Aaron's Garden

On the 1st anniversary of Aaron's passing last year, our family planted 300 tulip bulbs in our flower beds in hopes they would be in bloom on his birthday each year.  Ronny put them all in a giant tub and mixed them up as best he could.  Here is the result.  I wish you all could see how beautiful these flowers are.  For the past few weeks we have all enjoyed looking at each flower and each bud yet to bloom.  They smell amazing!  I never knew tulips could smell so sweet.  Our hope was to have a reminder of how precious each of our lives are and how much love can be shared through such simple things as a tulip, a smile, a touch, and a prayer.  Though Aaron was so small and lived only a short time, he shared his spirit, his love, and his gentle touch that has literally changed lives for the better.
