The love of friends...

Aren't these roses just gorgeous? 

They are almost as beautiful as the face and heart of the sweet friend who brought them to me.  Although I have only known her a short while, she dropped by this morning with this lovely vase full of flowers from her own rose garden, because she knew that this week was going to be difficult as I adjust to having my daughter at college for the first time.   She knows from that deep place that is a Mother's heart.  I am thankful beyond words.

Yes, yesterday we dropped DD off at college.  It was such a roller coaster of emotions, which I will share more about later, because right now I am tired and a little too spent to share. 

Happy Monday, sweet blog friends!

What beautiful roses!

I never understood what my mother went through when she dropped me off at college for the first time, until I was graduated and we talked about it. I was so excited to be "out on my own", and I never knew that she sobbed the whole way home. I think that only now can I even begin to understand the love that a mother has for her child.

Thinking of you!

Beautiful! And what a sweet gesture.

I'll be thinking about you this week. I'm sure that things are a bit quieter without your little lady in the house.
