As my mom says, it's good to feel happy again. Jeff was discharged from the hospital today and they stopped off at Potbelly's on the way home. He has some work ahead to build up his strength and to give his lungs time to heal. We are so thankful thankful. For those of you who have been praying for us, we appreciate it so much.

So after a flower-filled weekend at the ISFA conference and a week in Michigan with Jeff & PJ & my mom, tomorrow is back to a regular routine at work. Of course, I'm going to take some flowers :)

When I left for Michigan, just one little clump of daffodils was in bloom in the back yard. When I got home yesterday, there was a daffodil explosion happening! PJ and Jeff will be enjoying their back yard next week too.

And then I found this one. I love it. And I didn't have to fight anyone for it :)
Jeff is better! Off the vent today. We are so thankful. Tomorrow I'm on the train to spend a few days with him and my mom and my sister. It's been a good day.
Our Jeff Powers has made some progress over the last couple of days. It is very slow going and he is still very sick, but we are so so so thankful. Please keep praying with us for his recovery.

Our Jeff Powers is still in the hospital tonight. We're waiting for the results of a lung biospy, which we hope will give some answers as to what is making him so sick and what he needs to get better. Please pray with us. He will be 50 exactly one month from today and he needs to get well in time to have lots of CaKe for his birthday. We're all looking forward to celebrating with him.
While we're waiting, I've been working on this collection for the flower show this weekend. I am nervous about showing these pieces to so many professional florists, but having someone you love get sick is one way to remember what's really important in life. I feel like saying--okay, yes, I remember that life lesson--now can we just have Jeff back to his healthy he-man self??
Centerpiece paved with orange and yellow ranunculus and surrounded by a swirling vine.
Orange poppies, green anthurium and hydrangea, with yellow orchids. The branches are bound with decorative wire, inspired by the Branching Out class with James Lutcke and Bob Friese in Michigan last spring.
It's been good to have this project going over the last week. It gave me something to do other than just worry and wait. Be watching for lots of flower pictures from the show. Springfield will be full of flowers from all over the world and florists from all over the state.
Next week, I'm heading to Michigan on the train. Love love to my mom and my sis and to Jeff.

|sweet card from my mama|
As I've gotten older, I've gotten happier, so 56 is okay with me. I am thankful for so many blessings. I loved these cards that came in the mail. And so many birthday wishes on facebook--some from really close friends who just made my heart sing. . . and some from online friends whom I've never met but I visit with everyday.
