Thanks to Everyone Who Ever Sent Me Flowers

Sad times come to everyone. It’s part of life. When you’re sad and feeling unloved, nothing beats having the people who do love and care about you remind you that you aren’t alone.

Flowers. They help.

Today, my therapist and friend listened to me, affirmed my experience, and gave me flowers. That’s about all you can do, but it means a lot!

These celosias, sunflowers, and marigolds liven up my fall display.

I put some flowers in my fun owl vase, and the rest as part of our fall display. They cheer the house up and make me feel loved.

The owls are holding the zinnias from my kind therapist.

I have such good memories about flowers. These tiny orchids were given to me by Ellie, when I was looking for something to wear to her wedding. I smile when I see them.

These are tiny. It’s from the mini orchid Ellie got me.

No wonder I have flowers everywhere. I think of when Lee gets me flowers, when Anita and I get bouquets from the grocery store, and even if the little palm I got when Dad died. I’m so thankful for all these people.

The little palm is behind today’s re-blooming spotted orchid.

It’s just so good to know people care. If you know someone who’s hurting, consider flowers, a plant, or something they can see to remind them you’re thinking of them. It really helps.

I’m so sentimental about things! At least flowers are ephemeral. Just like heartache. They will pass. Memories remain.
