Today's Flowers: One for my Daughter

From October 8, 2011

One day last week when I stopped at the market for a few things for supper, I came across a gorgeous bouquet of roses, gerbera daisies, chrysanthemums, and berries. I decided to get them for my daughter just because she's a great girl. I don't want to take for granted she knows that just because I do. I also want to know I believe it, that I love her ,tha tshe is joy itself.


Let us be grateful to people who make us happy: They are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.  (Marcel Proust)

  2. Ah, that there were more mothers/parents who recognize and share your wisdom, Sandy! I know have always tried to let my children know just how important they are and how precious they are to me and to thank them for the joy they bring me. Particularly, these days when there is so much anger and hatred in the world, we all need all the love and kindness we can get/give/share. Have a beautiful evening, my friend. Thank you for all you do.

  18. That is excellent. I remember one day, years ago, a friend brought me a hanging, blooming plant, and said she appreciated me and just wanted me to know it. Very moving, and unforgettable. Flowers on birthdays are great, but just because are even better. And a lovely photo as well!
