Flowers, food for our souls, always uplift.
They fill our eyes with delight and our hearts with love.
When I came down to the kitchen on Mother's Day, hubs had a dozen of gorgeous white with deep pink edged roses waiting for me in a pink vase. What a guy!
Baby's breath tucked between the sweet roses brought out their beauty even more.
Then the doorbell rang! I had no idea flower companies delivered their goods on a Sunday.
However, since it was a special holiday, they definitely did!
It was tied with a perky green bow covered with white polka dots.
Anna, a dear and very special woman, who I have known for 37 years, honored me by sending the bouquet.
It even came with a box of Whitman's chocolates, wrapped in white tissue paper, and nestled inside a white gift bag.
Her note, attached to the flowers, filled my eyes with tears and my heart with immense love.
Last, but not least, a bouquet of star gazer lilies fills the house with incredible fragrance as it sits on a kitchen counter.
I added a sprig of mini carnations given to all mothers who had dinner on Mother's Day at Coyote Flaco!
It's a restaurant in Williamstown, Massachusetts, that specializes in food from Mexico and Spain.
Giving the blooms was an extra special gesture of kindness.
Not only are flowers food for the soul, they make life here on earth more precious, too!
