flowers and the hope of spring

March 20, 2013

I celebrated my birthday on Sunday and felt SO beautifully loved with lots of special phone calls, messages, cards, gifts, and emails. As y'all know I mentioned on Monday how much I adore flowers. They are truly one of my favorite things.

Unfortunately, on Monday I found out some difficult news about my health and I will admit that the last 48 hours have been very difficult with my health issues. So imagine my SURPRISE when this morning I received the most BEAUTIFUL bouquet of flowers. I opened up the box and inside I was greeted with lovely tulips and a very encouraging note. To say "thank you" seems impossible. THANK YOU SO much Jen for your thoughtfulness, your perfect timing with your words of encouragement, and my flowers that I will enjoy for days to come. As we greet this first day of Spring (one of my favorite seasons) I am overcome with hope that truly Spring is coming in all different ways!


  1. I'm sorry to hear about your health issues :( I will be praying for you!

  2. OH no, i'm so sorry about your health. Please let me know, and i'll keep praying! I LOVE tulips...they have such a way to lift the spirits!!! love Katie
