Today would have been my friend Emily's Birthday. But to family and friends it IS still her birthday. We keep her alive through memories and always in our hearts. Last year I showed you her memory garden that can be seen here. All the same flowers are blooming, so please go visit again. There is one exception, I have a new flower added, because of a special friend Janet, that contacted her friend, Dick Henley, that owns and operates Poplar Creek Perennials. He graciously gave to me a day Lily named Rose Emily.
I petted and talked to the bulbs, and could not wait for her to bloom. She finally did. Here she is in all her beauty. See the yellow center, to me it symbolizes the light that Emily walked into. Thank you Dick, Janet, and thank you Emily for allowing me to know and love you. And to God who has blessed me with all the special friends I have in my life.
