With two sons that are Veterans in the Marines….I can’t go without remembering all they have done for our country today! We are so blessed to live here in the U.S. and breathe the beautiful air and enjoy the happy flowers! Thank you Tom And Matt. And so many others!
Ten years ago today a woman came into the flower shop to buy flowers because her son had just been killed in Iraq. She shared her story about her 3 sons and how heroic this particular son that died was. Together we cried. This was before I knew my sons were joining in on the madness. She has remained my friend all these years. She came in to buy some flowers again yesterday. I know when I look into her eyes that I am fortunate to still have my sons. She is a strong religious woman and her faith has helped her through. And she in turn helped me through 🙂
My advice for a Memorial Day picnic would be a mason jar full of Sweet William flowers.
