Fresh Flowers

I have never been one to want flowers. Although I think they are beautiful, I can always think of something else that would be more worthwhile to spend my money on. Following our recent miscarriage we received a few flower arrangements and potted flowers from family and friends. They were all so beautiful -- there were gerber daisies, roses, lilies, hydrangeas, irisis, and a bunch of names I don't know. And do you know . . . they actually did cheer me up. It is hard to feel sad with beautiful flowers around. After those flowers were gone (or planted in my yard), Trent brought home flowers following a big recruiting dinner. It was a beautiful arrangement. The flowers all lasted so long and then suddenly it was 2 days ago and I realized that the last of the flowers needed to be thrown away and I was so sad not to have fresh flowers that I went and bought myself these roses. (I found them at HEB -- one dozen for 7.99 -- can't beat that price!!!!) And I must say they are beautiful. They have made everyone's day!

And the best part is that while we had all these beautiful flowers, we were also showing our home and we got a lease contract on it last night. I am sure the roses sealed the deal yesterday. So I am looking at my $7.99 as an investment, for sure!!!!

Hey, it was good to hear from you! DeAnn told me you had a blog, but I never came across it. I didn't know you were moving to New York. That will be a huge change! Good luck! E-mail me so I'll have your e-mail and I'll send it to Amberlynn. rossi_melanie@yahoo
