IF YOU WANT THE RAINBOW,
YOU GOTTA PUT UP WITH THE RAIN.
I am sitting here, munching on a delicious, warm (mmmmm) Panera bagel. Heavenly breakfast!
Yesterday was one of the best days I've had in a long time. Miss Betty came to see me and, boy, did we have a great talk-fest. I am so proud of all the things that she has accomplished but her family is definitely the ultimate prize in her life. It was so good to see her (but unfortunately, I will have to stand her next to Ronnie M. and smack them BOTH!, 'cause she's as young looking as ever, just like him.)
Betty not only came to visit and show support for me, but she came loaded down with goodies. That girl brought a HUGE assortment of delicious Panera bagels, spreads, and three kinds of soup for our lunch. NICE! Then she proceeded to give me a gift bag with the neatest large water bottle (Betty is the one who is reinforcing my drinking water all the time) with sunflowers designed all over the outside. What a surprise and a very nice treat.
I hope everyone has someone in their lives that makes everything feel a little better and more sane. I'm finding some really amazing "someones" in mine.
NOTE: A while back, I posted about Jenna starting the "sunflower movement" when she put those beautiful flowers at the top of this blog. and I wondered what interesting twists that the sunflowers would take during this time. I need to acknowledge that Nina dropped off a gorgeous cutting board covered with a sunflower motif, because she said when she saw it, it screamed "JANENE". It was so thoughtful and so pretty. I noticed when I flipped through my new 2014 calendar that Little Ma gave me, that the September page, which happens to be Jenna's birth month, is covered with sunflowers. I like it when I flip through a magazine and see them pictured, and there is a TV commercial that shows a beautiful display of my flowers, and that makes me smile. I am already trying to figure out where I am going to plant LOTS of sunflowers somewhere in our yard this spring. Hopefully, more than six plants will come up this time.
GOD BLESS YOU ALL
