Mother's Daffodils...............

Several years ago I was delighted to find out that the Cancer Survivors could deliver a bunch of daffodils to Mother in the care center even though it's 38 miles away.  So every year I did that.  The daffodils always arrive just at the right time - when we really need some bright yellow joy at the end of the winter.  It always made Mother's day to get her bunch of daffodils.

I was surprised to get a call from them shortly after Mother's death and the woman said "I saw the obituary and wondered what you want me to do with her daffodil order." Shaken, I said to just go ahead and deliver them to me.

So Monday when we were out of town they put them in our mailbox.  So this is how I came about this beautiful bouquet.                      Diane

What a wonderful surprise and at a time when its cheeriness was needed. Just like a loving Mom to comfort you when you need it the most. How wonderful, a gift from heaven :)

I'm glad that you are able to enjoy those cheery daffodils. A little bit of springtime indoors even though it's cold outside. Warm hugs, Tammy
