What is today's gift?

Every day brings a gift, if only one sees it. Today, and for the past two weeks, my gifts have overwhelmed me. My friends have lavished food, compassion, laughter, and support. Over a year ago I published two pictures of flowers that Harold gave me for Valentine's Day 2008. They were bittersweet, because I blogged at the time my fear they would be the last. In fact, this Valentine's Day found me a lonely widow. But here again are beautiful flowers for me---this time from girlfriends who have taken their time and effort to organize lunches, visits, games, and good old fashioned conversation during my convolescence. Here's to my girlfriends!
