Happy Mother's Day 2011
When my DH was a little boy one day his Mama went down to the little unfinished basement to get something -but her attention was diverted by a little container with beautiful flowers in it. She had never seen this before so she asked DH if he knew where they came from?
He said, yes- that he had picked them from a neighbor's flowers. She told him that it was wrong to steal and she marched him right over to the neighbor's to apologize to her. She listened to him and then told his Mama - do not punish that child. IF he cared enough to place them in water -then she did not mind at all to share with him.
So, today my DH raided my flowers and brought the bouquet to me for Mother's Day. I gathered up supplies to put them in water and I thought of his history with flowers. It is hard to be upset with someone who raids your flowers when it is done out of love.
This was the start of them and you know how much I LOVE this iris -so for a minute it was the "STAR" of the show.
Emmett spoiled me - he brought me two beautiful fuchsias and a box of candy. I could not help myself from getting into the candy . There was a pocket with chocolate covered nuts and when my greedy little hand went visiting there - it slipped through my fingers because the hot sun had melted the chocolate. LOL I had a box of "Liquid chocolates"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Bet you have never had that flavor before! LOL
So, Happy Mother's Day to All ! And to all a Good Night!!!!!!!!!!!! :)
