Then, with age and more earning power, came the more elaborate flower displays. (Only Eileen can make wonders like this table piece for my youngest son's wedding !) The bouquets came in their own vase, delivered by a stranger sent from the boys who lived far from home. Still the child's message was there, "I love you, Mom". "We miss you, Mom". They would always call to chat and send their love again. The flowers were rotated to different rooms so I could feel their hugs wherever I was in the big, quiet house. Happy Mother's Day!
Following a long cold winter, Mother Nature or a loving God sends a happy greeting and promise of sunshine and warmth to come. The gift of flowers. Colors finally spring from the damp and faded ground, new birth, new life, new joy. Yellow, purple, pinks and red, so beautiful and uplifting. My heart always soars! The dark days of clouds and rain may come to an end. Break out the lighter jackets! Start planting more colors! God is good! Happy Mother's Day!
