Say it with flowers.

A beautiful childhood memory I have always loved brings me back to our home in Olongapo City. Our front yard has a pathway with San Francisco plants. Intertwined were unruly vines of sampaguitas that bloom tiny fragrant buds. I would pick those white buds till my hands were full, then ran to our long wooden banquet table at the common dining room and sew the soft little buds into a garland. Afterwards, my siblings and cousins and I would change into our white clothes. and leis in hand, we would ride the jeepney together to St/ Joseph's Church. There, we would sing traditional Marian songs while walking down the aisle to offer our flowers to Our Lady.

Thank you. Now I feel I should plant sampaguitas again. Perhaps you have the jasmine flowers in America. Here, take a look.
@RebeccasFarm I have a male best friend who lives in New Zealand now with his family. Everytime we communicate, he would ask me first 'When was the last time you smell the flowers?' I have a Rosal plant (Gardenia in your continent) that is blooming fragrant white flowers this season. So I smell the flowers every day.
