Not Like Everyone Else

Lilac, one of Mom's favorite flowers

Mom once said "she's not like everyone else" about me, and I guess it's true. But what she didn't say was that she wasn't like everyone else either, and neither was Daddy.  They were very special people with no limit on their love or generosity.  I'm so blessed that these two people were my parents.

Flash Friday 55


  1. What a beautiful way to feel about your parents. Your mom sounds like a really neat person!

  2. sweet 55. parents play such a role in our lives...and every one of us is special and unique...that is what makes life so flavorful...nice 55.

    Given that I think you are special, it doesn't surprise me that your parents are special, too:~)

  9. Hi Linda .. expressed so well .. and our parents are special .. I am lucky my mother lives on and I appreciate the time I get to spend with her.

    Lilac is not her favourite .. but scents are & I have fresh flowers in her room everyday .. not always scented ..the challenge of no garden - but she loves the colours and the variations.

    We are all unique and special .. and have so much to offer at all times .. Thanks Linda - great read today .. Hilary

    Brian Miller- They do indeed, and I had two of the best.

    Eric Alder- Thanks.

    Jannie- Thank you. Don't they smell great?

    Sara- How sweet! Thanks.

    Pattiken- Thanks, I wish they could see it.

    Linda- Thank you.

    G-Man- Thanks, we were the best of friends, too.

    Hilary- Yes, you are lucky to still have your mother. My mom loved all flowers, so it was hard to pick, but when I saw the picture, I remembered how much she enjoyed the lilacs. Good for you to give your mom fresh flowers every day.
