Fresh As A Daisy!

Do you ever just buy yourself flowers? I do. These are some cute little daisies that I picked up at WalMart. They are so simple, but they have that sweet floral smell and last forever.
Just a little pick-me-up.



It is pretty busy here.

This weekend we take Sweet Daughter to Law School. What a mixed bag of emotions. She is my best friend and I will miss her tremendously! But to say that I am also incredibly proud of her choices and accomplishments, would be like saying an ant is small.

She is all that I ever prayed for.

Thank you Lord!

Good Morning Liz Sweetie...
A beautiful post. Oh and DD is going off to Law School. How exciting for all of you.

I will be saying some prayers for you all. DD to adjust in a new surrounding, and you and DH to adjust without her being in the house. It is an adjustment, and a sad one when they are our best friend. Been there, done that. (Yes I did survive. I stayed real busy).

Thanks for sharing the flowers this morning they are so beautiful.

Country hugs sweetie...Sherry

I completely understand and it wasn't until I was in similar situations that I began to truly understand the definition of bittersweet. Congratulations on raising such an accomplished daughter!

On another note - I used to buy flowers for my desk every week. I worked in a very stressful environment and having flowers on my desk (some days) were the only bright spot I had!! LOVE Daisies - those and pink carnations are my favorite!

Hey.....just found you......you are another AZ blogger.

Nice to meet you....We are currently traveling so computer is incredibly slow downloading pics. But I'm sure the daisies were beautiful.

So you are now an empty nester......it takes a little getting used to....but you will.

I'll visit again.

OOps.....I deleted my comment ......mice to meet another AZ blogger. We are currently traveling....and the WI FI makes everything as slow as molasses.

But I enjoyed your flowers and send you warm thoughts with your empty next.

liz, sometimes we just need to have a fresh bouquet to pick our spirits up! you have a lot ahead of you and i know what you are going through. our children reach a point in their life that they need to stretch their wings to fly solo and use what we have taught them to help them navigate their way through life.

((hugs))
