Ah, flowers

Most of my bloggy friends are mothers. Mothers who, at one time or another, have had moments, hours or days like the one I previously posted about here. I have a great group of online friends. It's been so nice to receive so many encouraging words. I 'heart' my blog friends. Oh and my dad, who also left a sweet comment...man I wish he lived closer!

One of my wonderful new friends is Kelli. She 'sent' me flowers to brighten my seconds, minutes, hours, days and the week I'm about to endure without my hubby at home. So sweet, Kelli, thank you!

And since I know there are women out there who have to endure a lot more than a short week without their husbands at home, I'm sharing my flowers. Please don't send me messages telling me to 'man up'...I know I'm a sissy. A sissy who's use to having her husband at home being a wonderful daddy and helper. It stinks no matter how long he's gone.

I love FLOWERS!

Kelli said...

Thanks Tina, Glad I could help your day. Wish I had money, I would have sent you real ones, but since we are online friends, online flowers are the next best thing. Stay strong, until he comes home. Sometimes easier said than done!

So pretty!:)
My husband is leaving all next week for work too. I know how you feel.
It's hard when they are gone. And lonely.:(
I'll say a prayer for you that God blesses your week.
Have a great day!
Amy:)

Awwww! That was so sweet of kelli to send you cyber flowers! I know how hard it is to be without hubby for a week. Usually by Wednesday I am a puddle. I can psych myself out for about that long. You know, Monday: He's just working late, Tuesday: He's staying up late to watch a sci-fi show, Wednesday; WHERE'S MY WARM, CUDDLY, HELPFUL, SWEET HUSBAND???? WAAAAAHHHHH!!!! The nice thing is having some close family friends two doors down who are like parents, and hug me when I am missing him. I guess that makes me a sissy, too. Sigh!

At three weeks of recovering from a c-section he went out of town for a week and I had no help....I seriously think I cried nonstop for 24 hours, when he returned it seemed like the time flew....oh well, they make a difference!

Love the flowers, thanks for sharing! It stinks when your husband is gone for any amount of time, unless he takes the kids ;o). Hope you have a better Sunday next week!

Beautiful flowers! It was very sweet of Kelli to send you those. And the great thing about online flowers - you don't have to take care of them and they will never die :)

Thanks for sharing with us.
