Describing my birthday bouquet to me

This is what my dear friend, Gabriella, did for me on my latest birthday. I knew that it was from Mom but this was as much as I knew after I had felt each flower, each leaf, and then ran my hands along the plastic ornament that the florist had placed in my arrangement, and oh yes! I did not forget to smell the flowers; not the roses, as they often say.

Gabriella sure brought my arrangement to life! She described it all to me and she even took a picture with her digital camera so that Mom could see it. Then, like magic, my memory took over and I allowed it to go back to previous birthdays when I received bouquets from so many others.

The colors came dancing into my mind. The shapes came to life. The sizes appeared out of nowhere and everything else just fitted into place. Then, at the end of it all? My precious birthday bouquet was now in the right place, well implanted in my mind and will forever be there! Mom's precious birthday bouquet to me!

This is a personal message from author Donna Jodhan
"Each time we raise our voice at someone else we are engaging in bullying! Each time we raise our hands to slap or punch someone else we are also engaging in bullying and each time we engage in actions to either manipulate or force someone else to do what we want we are also engaging in bullying!

There is no room in this world for bullying and each day we fail to take action against bullying it is another day that we allow others to bully us and our kids. Our heroes and role models are the ones who have made us proud; those brave young men and women who gave their lives for us in past wars and those who continue to do so. They are not the ones who choose to be racists and those who believe that their bad behaviour in public is acceptable.

I write and record audio mysteries that are being used at such events as murder mystery evenings as well as at public awareness and team building events. I promote understanding, tolerance, and problem solving and my audio mysteries continue to be broadcasted around the world and you can listen to them anywhere! On the plane or train! In the car or right there in your home! On your i device or computer!

Please join my campaign against bullying (CAB) by supporting my efforts to keep on writing and recording!
If you truly care then you will certainly dare!"
