The bouquet


This bouquet was my last birthday gift from my Sweet Hubby. Yes, today is my birthday...

He awoke before me, and as sick and weak as he was, went out into our yard and snipped here and there. A couple hydrangeas here, a few lilies there...

It was the most beautiful bouquet I've ever seen. It was put together with loving hands. I loved it and wanted it to last forever...

My Sweet Hubby always made a big fuss over my birthday. He said he didn't believe a day was enough and insisted that I have a birthday week. And he would start with the birthday wishes weeks in advance...oh, he always made me feel so special. So treasured. So loved.

Thank you, Sweetheart, for always making my dreams come true. Your love was the best gift of all...I am so very blessed to have called you mine.

"My beloved is mine, and I am his: he feeds among the lilies." Song of Solomon 2:16
