Blooming Reminder

My Daddy went home to be with Jesus on February 2 of this year...it seems like years and years ago most of the time.  But I have this...

This African violet was in an arrangement sent to Daddy's funeral.  This is the third time it has bloomed
since February 2nd.  Every time it blooms, I am reminded...
  • My Daddy lives....in heaven
  • Life goes on
  • There is beauty around me all the time
  • My heavenly Father loves me enough to give me this sweet reminder
  • I will see my Daddy again one day!
I am not a "green thumb" person...I am usually more of a black thumb-er.  Yet, this plant continues
to live and thrive...my personal blooming reminder.

Made me cry to read this. Makes me miss him. So glad we get to see him again someday. Love you, Momma!
