A BRIGHT NEW DAY


The Birthday bouquet from a couple of weeks ago started looking very sad, I almost threw it away but notices a few flowers still had life.

I had some little glass vases stored in the book shelf on the balcony so now I can enjoy the last of the bouquet.  A gift that keeps on giving.....

Have a Great Day.... I'm off to meet my new oncologist since we moved.  Routine check up and mammogram.   Six years cancer free....God is good all the time and then some!!

    I have a funny story about Mother's Day flowers!
    As you know we are down on my step son's ranch and it has RAINED and RAINED. Amber wanted to knw WHERE we were - as in an address - so if she needed to get to us she could. I thought she was planning on sending a mothers day card to me but NO! She ordered a dozen beautiful roses to be delivered!! Well, she does not understand just where we are! There is a gate up at the entrance of the property and we are 3/10 of a mile down a very muddy road with soem ruts deep enough for critters to swim in when it rains. AND IT HAS RAINED EVERYDAY! Florist do not deliver where we are! SO I advised her to cancel the order and get her money back. In the meantime - Ruth Ann went over to our house Tuesday to check on things - and the florist delivered a box of long stemmed roses! He left them on the porch so it's a good thing Ruth Ann was there! I told her to take them home and enjoy them! She took pics of them so I could enjoy them from afar! She thinks they will still be pretty when we get home tomorrow - IF we can get out!!! Say a prayer please. We wanna go home......

    1. Just love your story Linda. Sure glad Ruth Ann stopped by to check on things...see your roses keep on giving. Hopefully it will be dry enough for you and Louis Dean to get home...your roses will be waiting.

    1. I really like my new oncologist...a little unnerving, as he looks just like Ron Howard. But I like him as he takes time to really listen to you. Blood work, Bone Density, and mammogram and I'm set for another year.

      Yes, I do believe I've seen Martha do that in magazines. I need to use my little vases more.
