My beautiful daughter who is going through Chemo treatments at present. This was taken while I was at her home a couple of days following her first go. Doesn’t she look beautiful? I’m sorry if I may sound a little hubristic. She, along with my three other children, are my pride and joy. Not to mention, the nine awesome grandchildren I can claim as my own. At least, for the time being. I realize they are borrowed from heaven.
This little angel sits not far away when she is reading and contemplating on her Pergola. She is an avid reader and writes seldom due to her busy life. However, when she does put pen to paper, watch out. Twice she has sent something in to contests, and twice she won first prize.
At twenty-years-of-age, my daughter was diagnosed with Lupus. She suffered terribly with arthritic pain. Realizing she could no longer play sports, which was her gifting in a sense, she found something to help her cope. She began to study flowers, particularly, perennials. She learned the authentic names of each plant, and her flower beds are stunning.
The bed in and around her pergola is absolutely brilliant. At the time I took these photos, it was too early to shine in splendour. For now, we can only enjoy her hanging planters and birdhouses which the hummingbirds take full advantage.
Our God is a good God. He holds the universe in the palm of His hands. My daughter is in good Hands.
