Dealing with parental loss can be tough. Oftentimes, it’s important to hold onto a special memento that’ll always remind you of them. Other times, it can be therapeutic to continue forward with a hobby of theirs, to keep their spirit alive.
But sometimes, with siblings, these treasured mementos may lead to a fight. Even over something relatively small, like a bouquet. A Redditor who posted under the throwaway username of aitaflowerthrowaway asked whether or not he was in the wrong after denying his sister something that, all of a sudden, became important to her — flowers from their mother’s garden.
“I’m 27 m, my sister is 24,” he wrote. “She’s supposed to be getting married at the end of this month and has been postponing it since April… I don’t have control over her decisions.”
He added that their mom has, unfortunately, been out of the picture for a few years. “Our mom died three years ago after a long battle with cancer,” he said. “She was an avid gardener after she retired/during her treatment, and she grew a beautiful garden. Her landlord let me take what I could of her garden after she passed.” Many flowers were included, with plenty that would have made for a good bridal bouquet.
Transplanting a garden can be difficult, but also very rewarding. It’s sweet to know that something his mom cared so deeply about was given a second chance to thrive.
