Flowers Make Everything Better

I have been dealing with what I call a cold sore on steroids ever since we returned home from Colorado Island ten days ago… As bad as it looks in this photo, believe me this is only half as big as it was on day one, when my whole face was swollen, not to mention how big my lip was, and OMG does it ever HURT!!!


Funny thing is that the last time I went to Colorado Island, I returned home with the very same thing on my lip and it took eleven days for it to go away… I’m thinking it is more of a sunburn. I put sun screen on my face, arms, and legs, but didn’t apply any directly on my lips..  I would rather it be a sunburn, because I would sure hate to think I could be allergic to Coronado Island… Oh NO!!!

Anyway, yesterday, when my husband, Bill/Bro came home from work, he walked into the kitchen singing “you don’t bring me flowers anymore…” He had his hands behind his back and when he turned around he had these beautiful flowers for me..


I love, love, love, fresh flowers and my favorite are carnations because they are so beautiful and last so long.

Bill said when he stopped to buy the flowers the guy behind the counter said “oh, a birthday?” Bill told him no. Then the guy said “anniversary?” Bill told him no. So the guy asked what was the occasion and Bill told him “because I have the greatest wife in the whole world..” How sweet and precious is that?

I don’t know why, but no matter how bad I feel, or what all else is going on in my life… “flowers always make everything better.”

Now all I have to do is decide where I like them best, on the kitchen table


or by the kitchen window…


I’m thinking by the window. Then I don’t have to move them when Bill and I eat dinner… 🙂 What do you think?

Thanks Bill for always being so very thoughtful and knowing that I love flowers. Because, in my world, “flowers make everything better.” Love you!

Stay Tuned!

    What a sweet husband! I like the flowers in either spot but like them near the window. They are beautiful flowers. I hope your lip heals quickly. It looks painful. Love you
