carry the tulips

i wanted to carry tulips on my wedding day

but the florist told me they were "too fragile"

and so i walked down the aisle carrying roses

which were beautiful {and expensive}

but they weren't tulips

i'm so glad that one of Age's dearest friends is Wisdom

because if that florist told me the same thing today

i would tell him that life is fragile...

"now please hand over the tulips, bud"

{florist pun by accident}


happy monday ya'll --- carry the tulips!

tulips brought to you by....{should I really tell you?}...ok, hold on to your hat, Mildred (and Mrs. Dunbar)...HomeGoods.  WAY!

Be honest, could you tell?!


Mrs. Dunbar said...

I actually thought they were real!

Life is fragile, so enjoy your blessings. Thanks for the lesson.

Those aren't real???? I wanted to carry tulips as well. They are one of my favorite flowers. However, I got married 4th of July weekend ~ a little warm and late for this flower.
