photoblog image Southern Flower

Southern Flower

Another magnolia blossom. This photo is for my stepmother Peggy, who has Alzheimer's. She is in the hospital right now following a "small" heart attack. She is on a respirator. We are waiting to see what happens when the respirator is shut off--the prognosis is not good, and we may have a hard decision to make. Please think of her and us in your quiet moments. She has been my Dad's southern flower for 22 years.--LB

Of course I will think of her Larry
Larry Bliss: Thanks, Chris. It's a touch and go situation...
I like the magnolia plant especially the feel of it Larry.
Larry Bliss: Thank you Chad... it has an uplifting quality...
You will be in my thoughts. These are the hard times in our adult lives. She would be pleased that you think of her as a flower. Flowers have their season too.
Larry Bliss: And she has had a very long season (80 years old).
I light a candle Larry.
Larry Bliss: Thank you very much, Juan Carlos...
A sad time for you Larry. Sometimes letting go is the hardest thing but the right one. My thoughts will be with you and yours
Larry Bliss: You are right about letting go... my Dad already misses her from the well times.
Wonderful image, Larry - if we all focus hard, perhaps we can make a difference for your step-mum.
Larry Bliss: Beautiful thought, Tom. Thank you...
My thoughts are with you and your family.

I love the texture in this one
Larry Bliss: Thanks for thinking of us and for appreciating the flower.

This is a beautiful post.
