on her year of Jubilee. .
Part one. . the flowers. . . .
If she is your grammie . .. give her a princess tiara . . .
and a bouquet in pink. . .with the prettiest blue vase.
If she is your Monday night dinner club friend .. .
(and Monday night happens to fall exactly on her 50th birthday)
make it special .. .
and then send her home with the centerpiece ..
Orange roses. . .and red tulips
If she is in your care group ..
have high tea with her at Tracy cakes. .
and give her ruffly edged yellow tulips. .
If she is your little sister. . .
when she least expects it. . .
send her a bouquet .. .and imagine her eyes getting a bit watery. .
because she is a wee bit sentimental.
If she is a cousin you rarely see. .
but you are family and family does sweet things. .
give her a bunch of tulips that are fresh and crisp and last for days.
If she is your niece. . .
love her. . .treat her with kindness and affirm her. . . .
invite her over for dinner with some of her cousins. . and then send her home. ..
with the loveliest lime tinged yellow roses.
(it is that kind of thoughtfulness that makes a beautiful lady. . .a favorite aunt)
and she still feels your love. . .after 31 years . .
give her dozens of yellow roses ..
the exact hue of her bridal bouquet. .
Tommorow. . the things that people do.
All for now. .with love,
