Monday Morning Flowers: Birthday Edition


Happy Monday, My Darling Ones!

It's Betty's Birthday today and she celebrates by sharing flowers with you.


I'll be spending the day with friends and being grateful for all my blessings.

I reflect back on this life with appreciation and look forward with great optimism.

(FYI, There had better be cake and pretty presents involved at some point during the day or I just may snap.)


We turn not older with years, but newer every day.

Her stories are fine
And her photos divine:
