Blooming Gift

So I get a text today from a friend asking if I was home. I was. She said she had a surprise for me. I love surprises.

She (and her darling boys) brought in this huge Poinsettia plant with beautiful blooms. It's enormous... and absolutely flawless. I sat and admired it for a while and realized that it commands attention. You can't ignore it's magnificence.

What an unexpected gracious gift... that will add warmth and kind feelings to our home for the rest of the holiday season. I used to buy Poinsettia's at Duarte Nursery every year... It was an annual trip with my mom. But I can't remember the last time I was out there or the last time I had one in my home.

It's been like having a long lost relative back home for the holidays.
