CALIFORNIA LOVIN'

Our California daughter and grandchildren hit us with a big shot yesterday.  The florist arrived and began the parade into our home with floral arrangement after floral arrangement.  It was a shocking hoot.  They are so grateful for our caregivers who are close and they are sad to be so far away at such a critical time in our lives.  It was too much. 

It was wonderful.  Terri, you, Joey, Jacob, Jasmine are WONDERFUL!  Thank you

Beautiful bouquet for Mom's healing from two surgeries:)
Bouquet for Sister Chelle for her home care of parents -- perfect!
Something for Aunt Elenore and her care all week at hospital.  Couldn't have picked better.
Arrangement and box of chocolates for Dad for his birthday tomorrow.
Grill full of candy bars for brother Tandy for being a good helper to folks.
And I get to enjoy all of them until the other take theirs home.

  1. I'll bet that brought a few tears of joy.
    I was going to say something about you just getting out of the hospital and not feeling well and now the house must smell like a funeral with all of those flowers but for once I thought it out and have decided not to say a word.
    BTW, Your daughter must also be a very special person to do all of this. Good luck today.

    Pat MacKenzie -- Oh yes I know that and am richly blessed by each one.

    Mountain Mama -- Thank you so much for your prayers.

    Riot Kitty -- You don't need to send a thing except good thoughts and wishes.

    Cliff -- Who knows what might be hidden behind door number 2.

  18. Glad you are home safe and sound. Bunches of beautiful flowers can't hurt the recuperation process. Enjoy.

  19. cube -- My bouquet is the only one with live flowers. All the others are fake. Still everything does look like a floral wonderland. Well except for the candy bouquet for my son and that one is in danger if he doesn't get it soon:)
