Flowers Save The Day

This morning I typed up a post about my day of rememberance and mourning with a smile on my face.

I felt really good and wanted to remind myself in the future, (sounds like a scene from Lost or Back to the Future) that I had been able to handle April 8th well in the past.

Did you ever have one stupid comment, from someone important to you, ruin your entire mood? I am sure you have. We can really only be hurt deeply like that by the people we love.

I thought I was in a good place, and that I was mostly letting silly, unimportant, ridicuoulus and sometime hurtful comments roll off my back. Today, I was unable to let something go. It ate at my core until I just wanted to crawl inside myself and get this day over with.

My bible study was scheduled to come at 4:30 and up until 4:10 I considered keeping the appointment. I called and canceled thinking I would be unable to put on a happy face for someone and sit through the reading.

They were extremely understanding when I told them why the day was a hard one.

About an hour later I was on the phone with my sister when my son said there was a car in the driveway. Then my call waiting rang and it was my bible study group Eliesha and Chelsea telling me they left something by the door. I went out to find this.

I love getting flowers, they are like chocolate and make everything better.

Bible passage they suggested:
Romans 15:4 (New International Version)

For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through endurance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope.

Ahhh....feeling lighter already!


I love comments. Please feel free to leave a comment. I would love to talk to you further
