I have a difficult time expressing my feelings on paper… I will try again, as I scrapped the first try.

I am surrounded by flowers, tokens of the love that my family has for me. Can you feel it? It has a very real presence here in my suite.

Carnation and yellow

The love is expressed in so many ways. Like cooking a special dinner for me… or taking me out for dinner…. Like playing a steel guitar and singing for me… like picking up groceries that I forgot to order from the delivery store.

boquetThey are there when I have a trip to the Hospital, or  whenever I need them…. and I am forever grateful for the love they share with me. I am truly blessed.

I am also grateful for the love I feel from my contacts on Flickr, and also for those that visit and comment on my blog.

Like my son keeps telling me…”You’re a lucky girl”, and I agree with him. I have so many things happen that prove “I am a lucky girl.”
