When I was a wee one
I always wanted to visit Nana
and bring her flowers.
Seemed to me she never got any.
As I saw things,
she was always alone, too.
I picked beautiful dandylions for her
and she put them in a water glass on her dining table!
I didn’t know it was a water glass
nor did I know the “flowers” were just weeds.
Nana must not have known what they were either
because she kissed me
and said they were beautiful
just like ME!

Luther Burbank: “Flowers always make people better,happier, and more helpful: they are sunshine, food and medicine to the soul.”
I like this quote because it states something I have come to believe but in a different way. I believe that God created flowers solely for the purpose of making us smile, feel warm,and know that we are loved. They represent God’s kisses to me.

My recent total hip replacement surgery was a success and in a few months, God willing, the other will do likewise! The Lord showered me with His presence and love the entire time!
I continued writing while in hospital, but low tech – PEN AND NOTEBOOK! Be blessed!

To an impatient gardener
a slowly blooming seed
is a frustration!
But the Master Gardener
stays very near
and nourishes with food,
and He is filled with joy
when the blossom comes to life!
