Friday: Flowers, Fun, and Friends

10 May

“Flowers always make people better, happier, and more helpful; they are sunshine, food and medicine to the mind.”
― Luther Burbank

The doorbell rang this morning around 10am. I scooted over to the door, but didn’t see anyone. Ah, I saw the UPS truck out by the street and a package by the door. A long, thin purple box that said 1-800 Flowers.com peeked out below the window. How exciting,

I opened up the box and found two dozen colorful tulips. The card inside said Happy Mother’s Day, Love Joe. Yesterday, when Matt called, he asked if I was going to around Sunday because he was sending something. That’s when you know that you raised your sons well. They love their mama. Thank goodness I have a lot of vases. Thank you God, for two wonderful sons.

Aren’t they pretty?

Later, I went to Towne Creek for my little senior art group. I brought some roses from my Knockout rose bushes. We worked on painting some scented votive candles and small glass bowls. Then, we had a feast of cheddar brats, snack mix, strawberry whipped cream cake and chocolate covered strawberries. More fun with friends on Friday.

It was a beautiful evening, so when I got home, I went for a long walk, even though I was pretty tired. Now, I’m writing this post. A long day… A good day!

      Thank you so much. My sons are far away, but just knowing that they are thinking about me is heartwarming. You have a great weekend too.
