my life has been brightened by flowers recently. in a post 2 weeks ago i mentioned buying myself some tulips while they were on sale. they were pink and bright and cheery.
last tuesday was the northwest colorado visiting nurse's association's daffodil day. one day each year they sell bundles of daffodils as a fundraiser for their hospice programs. i always try to buy a bunch or two. this year it felt even more appropriate, with the assistance from the visiting nurses & hospice that my family recently received. i'm still feeling very sad over the passing of my grandmother, but enjoying many marvelous memories as well. i'll be heading to connecticut on wednesday to spend a few days on waterside lane with my parents before the service on saturday.
