Flower Mystery

Tuesday this week I received 25 roses. the card said "Happy Birthday from some people far away"  It was four days early and I couldn't guess who they were from.  Probably one of our children.  Wednesday, I received 25 tulips. the card said "An even happier birthday form some people far away who miss you and love you very much".  Thursday I received another bouquet!  this time 20 Iris!  The card said "Here are 70 flowers for your 70th birthday.  Happy birthday, You deserve it! Love" and it was signed by each of our 6 children!  What a fun adventure that was as it took place in our employment office for everyone to enjoy the mystery and the flowers.  They are now going in the big cooler at the Bishop's storehouse at night to make them last longer.  What a wonderful idea and great family.  I am so grateful for each of them.  Many other wishes and gifts and cards have come for which I am ever thankful.

March 20th in Slidell Louisiana

Just a drive around the town to see the flowers.  We didn't find the best but they are beautiful just the same.

This tree is on the campus ot USM on the gulf coast.  It survived Katrina.  It is over 500 years old.  It is an awesome experience to be underneath it's branches.  Quite symbolic.  Many proposals and weddings have taken place there.

The Day after a Mardi Gras Parade

The beads and junk are all over the parade route from last night.  Today the "jailbirds" will get to clean it up.

Great blessings come to those who are faithful and wait.

The candy bar in his had is a "PayDay" bar.  We think it is appropriate.
