Thanks for the Smile

Rainbow Daisy
Yesterday my cousin called. She told me she's ordered flowers for Friday, and she'll take them to the cemetary. A bouquet of rainbow daisies tied with a bright lime green ribbon...because she thought maybe that's what a teenage girl would like (my girl would be 13 on Friday). I couldn't agree more. And the whole thing just made me smile.

That was so sweet of her. What an amazing sister to remember and be so thoughtful.
Thank you so much for being 'here' for me. I'll send you an email soon. I've been meaning to do that but my life is messy at the moment..
love you,
Xo Lindsay

Someone gave me rainbow colored daisys last year and my teenage girls freaked out over them. I know your girl will love them too.
I'm thinking about you this week.

I think that sound perfect.

My cousin would have been 18 this year. We always try to do purple flowers..they were always her favorite.

Natalie -- Just holding you up this week and particularly on Friday (which happens to be my birthday as well). The bouquet of daisies sounds gorgeous and so fitting for a new teen. I'm so sorry she isn't here to squeeze and hold.

Madam,

She taught me something, or reminded me of some subjective truths....

still you are the reason in spotting the subtle truth.

Best wishes to both!

Hang in there Natalie. I wanted you to know what an encouragement your story is to me right now.

They have called Hospice for my mother. I hope I handle this with the grace and beauty that you have handled your loss. I am so glad you share Victoria with the world. She is touching lives because you do so.
