Dear Mom, I said a prayer for you
to thank the Lord above
For blessing me with a lifetime
of your tenderhearted love.
I thank God for the caring
For the closeness we’ve enjoyed
in time of laughter and of tears.
And so, I thank you from the heart
for all you’ve done for me
And I bless the Lord for giving me
the best mother there could be.
Flowers are always a beautiful and wonderful gift for mom on Mother’s Day.
During the Victorian Era the language of flowers or floriography was used as a means of communication to send coded messages for words and feelings.
Although this means of communication has been all but forgotten, I think it is still fun to find flowers for our mom’s that send messages of love, admiration, joy, and thankfulness among other things.
For instance, you could give your mom a beautiful bouquet of roses in multiple colors; pink to symbolize love, grace, gentility, dark pink for thankfulness, pale pink for admiration, and joy.
Or orange roses for enthusiasm, and white for wisdom and charm!
Perhaps a bouquet of berries and chrysanthemum, to symbolize truth.
Daisy’s for beauty and alstroeumeria for wealth, prosperity and the fortune of having such a wonderful mother!
And tulips the ultimate symbol of unending love.
I think whichever beautiful flowers you chose in a bouquet or in a potted plant your mom will love them, not only for their beauty but because they are from YOU!
Will you be giving your mom some flowers for Mother’s Day or do you have another gift in mind? I have a few special gifts that are already on the way across the miles, I just wish that I could be there in person.
Enjoy your day!
One more thing, thank you to all of the people who have sent emails and left comments to say that they have made either the Cinnamon Roll Pancakes or the Cinnamon Roll Cake, I am happy to hear that the recipes worked for you and that you enjoyed them.
