Family in Flowers

My dear friend, Lauren Cunningham arranged these gorgeous flowers for me and delivered them to the 9th floor at Brackenridge Hospital here in Austin.

Hardships, if you are lucky, turn into celebrations of the heart. They also let you know who your biggest supporters are in life.

In other words, I didn’t have Columbus and his men fight with the natives; instead, they sat down together for the first Thanksgiving dinner.

Just when you’re not looking, is when Chia gets the shot. And if you don’t…
