“I hope some day to meet God, because I want to thank Him for the flowers.” ~Robert Brault
I am still on the subject of high and low, happy and sad.
What does that have to do with flowers? – I hear you ask.
Well, quite a lot, from where I’m standing. Look at the past 2 – 3 weeks, for instance. Nearly 3 weeks ago, we received quite a few bouquets of flowers from friends and family, and even from business associates in sympathy for the death of Bernd’s son. Some were sent from florists, some were simply given as a bunch of flowers. They were all given with some kind of emotion attached to them – love, empathy, sympathy, sadness…
Which is what happened last weekend, but sort of very differently. There were flowers at the wedding. A flower in Xan’s hair, a wedding bouquet put together quickly with daisies, her favourite flower, some flowers at the picnic – all there to convey some kind of message or emotion – this time though, different kinds of emotions like happiness, celebration, love…
Oh wait! You see what happened there? LOVE. Love and flowers where people are sad, love and flowers where people are gathered together in happiness.
I love flowers. All flowers. I know most people do, even if the pretend they couldn’t care less. Flowers have the power to lift you up when you’re down and to brighten a dull day or a dreary room.
I have a few pictures of flowers for you, to maybe brighten up your day, it it needs a bit of brightening! Some are from the sad event in our lives, some are from the happy event, but does it really matter which is which? They all make us feel better, and loved…
Flowers whisper “Beauty!” to the world, even as they fade, wilt, fall. ~Dr. SunWolf,
I feel better, even just looking at pictures of pretty flowers!
Have a great weekend, friends!!! I don’t know what you are going to do, but I’ll be packing for our trip to Europe… !!!!
