Sunshine Express

If you read my blog yesterday, you know I had an accident on the way home from my home away from home, Heritage Park Rehab & Long Term Care.
The day after the accident, The dogs went off into their intruder mode, I walked to look out the window and a car was in the drive way. The phone rang, the TV screen (yes the called ID shows on the TV) said Josie's Posies. I answer and he says I left flowers on your porch, I did not want to disturb the dogs.

NOTE: Their intruder mode is VERY loud.

Hubby says: "who would send you flowers?" NOTE: he knew they were not for HIM

I answer: "We can read the card!"
The card said, we heard you had an accident and we hope you are ok, we love you, Heritage Park.
And there you have my Sunshine Express. Not only is my kitchen table spiffied up, but the planter provided me with Blog Material and lots of fun moving the plant from place to place madly Snapping.

 And as you would like and desire that men would do to you, do exactly so to them Luke 6:31 amplified version

Pay it Forward, Spread the Sunshine, Show others you love them! Actions speak louder than words. Call! Visit! Email! Snail Mail!

Lessons from Luke
27But I say to you who are listening now to Me: in order to heed, make it a practice to love your enemies, treat well (do good to, act nobly toward) those who detest you and pursue you with hatred,
28 Invoke blessings upon and pray for the happiness of those who curse you, implore God's blessing (favor) upon those who abuse you [who revile, reproach, disparage, and high-handedly misuse you].

31And as you would like and desire that men would do to you, do exactly so to them.

Your planter/flowers are beautiful. Good pictures. It is nice to have people show you love.....You are so deserving. The first picture of the bottles is one you allowed me to print for John. We framed it and it hangs in his dining room and is beautiful.
(I'm first!)

I'm sorry about your accident...such an inconvenience. But glad no one was hurt. Your flowers are beautiful. I love daisies. How dear of the folks to send them to you.

I love your header photo too. The one of Ella is from last year.

I am so sorry you got boo boo's. Just remember
"if you had been going 35 miles per hour faster
the other driver would never have been there". Girl, pedal to the metal, and remember a yellow light means "hurry up or you gonna get hit. My mother got broadsided one time by a driver who ran a stop sign, and the other driver jumped out of the car and demanded to know how fast my mother was going my mothers reply was "not fast enough to get out of your way"
you have my:Sympathy

What lovely white flowers! Daisies, I'm thinking? All that white in the blue container is just stunning. Isn't it just wonderful when we get affirmed by others? As I was reading your post, I was hoping the commotion was a temporary car being delivered. Perhaps flowers are better. It let you know how loved you are. I have bottles like that on my kitchen windowsill! We keep having these things in common! It gives me an idea. I will do a post showing my bottles sometime. I put wine bottle charms on them to fancy them up. My picture won't be as good, because what really makes yours is the background with the sun shining on those big green leaves.

Hi Sandra...... the blog is great.... love the flowers and the first on of the bottles, my favorite. I'm so sorry about the accident. A gift of flowers says so much about the way people feel -- makes you feel special.

The flowers are beautiful, that was so thoughtful of them to think of you like that. Little things like that can lift our spirits. Great photos, I really like the soft lighting on the last one.

It sounds like your intruder alert is also an intruder repellent. My cat just hides under my desk when someone drive up.
