Birthday flowers from mom

She knows how much I love my flowers but she also knows that I can no longer see them. so what did she do? My beloved mom sent me flowers for my birthday a few months ago, making sure that they were my favorite colors. They were beautiful! They felt just right and smelled just right.

Mom also knew that I love small arrangements and in baskets so she again made sure that it was what I received. Yellow flowers that were all just ready to open their petals. She remembered that my favorite color is yellow and that I love to smell their sweet fragrance.

She did the same when I was sick a few months ago with pneumonia. A beautiful basket of flowers arrived for me on one of those cold winter days when I was battling the clutches of pneumonia. Ah yes! Flowers! One of my favorite things to receive and to give.

Flowers are forever with me. I live for them and I can still visualize them in my mind despite the fact that I can no longer see them. I love to gently touch their petals. Run my fingers ever so gently over them and to smell them. I love to try and tell the difference between the various types of flowers.

I’m Donna J. Jodhan, your friendly accessibility advocate, wishing you a terrific day and urging you to go out there and tell others how much I enjoy flowers even though I can no longer see them. Come visit me at
