violets

"Mom has breast cancer and has to have chemo every other week, which she dreads. She loves fresh flowers, so I've started buying her African violets as a treat on the day we go to the cancer center. She loves having these happy little flowers to set around her room, and I bought her a spritzer (which she overuses, but that's okay). I've started calling her 'Violet' because she likes the purple ones best."
