Give me flowers while I can smell them now being given to others.
|I wish you the gift of flowers this morning as you go about your day.
I am reminded of a favorite saying of my Mother when she would think about life and all of her time living it. She often said, "Give me my flowers while I am living!"
Today, I share my flowers with you because this beautiful bouquet was given to me on Sunday, and it is still beautiful today, and it just seems so selfish to keep them to myself.
Here are flowers to you for being my children, and family, and to you for being my friend, and to you for reminding me of who I am, and to those who stop me on the streets to say thank you,
And to you who responded to my email, and, yes, you for sharing your thoughts and prayer with me, and how could I forget my friends who are getting those needles in their eyes like me to save their sight,
And to my doctors who are always there for me in sickness, and in health, and yes, again, these flowers are for you, the ones who encourage me to stay the course when I would quit and give up, and for those who will forgive me for not having a category for them in this litany of thank yous. and flower sharing.
I am not able to send each of you a bouquet today, but know that if I could I would for each of you have contributed to making me the person I am today!
THESE FLOWERS ARE FOR YOU!
