this is the picture of one of the dried flower frames
made by a girlfriend of mine.
It is eleven years old so the colors have changed slightly.
When she made this for me I being the sap I am
had a big happy cry.
These were some of the flowers from my wedding.
I remember one of the mothers saying that night,
"Someone is stealing your flowers,"
I thought nothing of this thinking well it is the end of the night,
if they want them they can have them.
About a month later my two friends
Judy and Pat
brought this over to me
for a wedding gift.
Of course I loved it.
The two red roses
were the roses we had exchanged
with our mothers at the ceremony.
Both of them were happy
that they ended up in my picture.
I should say our picture,
as it is just as important to my husband.
In reflecting about our wedding,
It was beautiful,
my husband had his father as his best man,
I think it was one of my hubbies proudest moments,
and his father was so proud to stand up for his son.
My father in law passed on about seven years ago,
and I was blessed to know him for about 4 years.
He was a wonderful man, very funny,
My father passed away , it will be a year the end of May.
He really liked my husband and his family.
I am so pleased that Dad and my hubby got to know
Both of our mothers are still alive,
and my MIL lives in the same city,
so we see her often, and she is in good health.
And my Mom lives ten hours away,
We usually talk twice a day,
I try to call her in the evening
as that is the most lonely of times for her.
Back to the wedding,
we had so much fun
we were the last ones at our dance.
My husband was 46, and I was 35.
It truly was the best day of my life.
And it is a reminder of how important family is!
Sorry I was just going to show the picture,
my friend Judy also made a memorial picture
for my MIL after my FIL passed away.
It was beautiful
and hangs on a wall at her home..
So if your into recycling there is an idea
for a project.
Save the earth,
one old window at a time.
Have a great Thursday!
