Some Flowers to Brighten Your Day

My husband surprised me with flowers the Friday before Mother’s Day…

This way I can enjoy them all weekend!


They are now in three vases spread around the house.

Here are a few snapshots that I hope will brighten your day.


I like to think of Mother’s Day as a day to celebrate all women.

There are many women who may not be called “mom,”

But they have nurtured and cared for others.


They have shown a capacity for love and kindness that cannot be measured.

They have exuded joy.


They have made sacrifices so that others may benefit.


Take a moment to remember Mom…

…and to celebrate all women.


Have a wonderful day!

I hope you are able to share it with those you love.


I've always enjoyed writing and finally decided it was time to blog! As part of my profession I write every day, but I'm now trying to take the time to write creatively. My family and friends have been very encouraging as there is little that is written down in the way of a family chronicle. This is a favorite topic of mine! In addition to family history, I write about life, family, friends and faith. My husband is a full-time parent to our special needs daughter. I’ve explored this topic, too. I also enjoy music, crocheting, reading and relaxing with my family. I hope you enjoy what I have to offer!

      Hi topher79! The green ones are really great! Well, really they all are – LOL…I think it may be some type of mum. It’s really unusual to see those in the boquet with other “greens.” Thanks! 🙂
