Favorite Quote:
Worry is simply a misuse of the imagination.

A purple flower
Sits on a white windowsill.
Lone, but beautiful.

A vibrant purple,
Upon a stunning green stalk
In a silver pot.

The burst of color
In the white hospital room
Brings joy to the girl.

She is alone.
Unable to play outside
On a sunny day.

A friend sent the bloom
One day, during a visit.
The one friend to come.

But when the friend left,
The flower stayed beautiful.
Lone, but beautiful.

This is a true story. A story I hold close to my heart, wishing it would go away, but glad that it happened.
