Torn



So y'all know I don't speak to my mother.  And when she sends me things, I just fill in her address and write in "return to sender" on the packages. 

But today she skirted around that.  And sent me flowers.  But I didn't realize they were from her until after the flower deliver guy left.

So my solution was to toss the card and pretend I bought them for myself.  Who am I to reject a perfectly delightful Gerber Daisy?!

Knowing the situation, I'd go find someone to give them to.

And that is what making lemonade out of lemons looks like! :)

Those are really pretty flowers. They were a lovely Happy Friday gift to yourself if I do say so myself.

Good morning from L.A.!

When life gives you lemons...and what beautiful flowers they are. Enjoy them for what they are, and not for who they're from.

Warmly,

Elizabeth

Those flowers are beautiful. Glad you were able to make the best decision for you. Handling sticky family matters has never been easy for me. YOU inspire me!

Pretty flowers are still pretty flowers... regardless of where they came from. I think you did the right thing, ditch the card and ENHOY them !

Although their pretty flowers,I would remove them from the house.If you can't toss them, take them to the local library or better yet a nursing home. Look forward not back. I think that you're amazing with the courage and grace that you've shown.
