I miss my friend ................
I am showing you this lilly today . I call it my Becky flower . Becky was my very best friend I have ever had. Becky died 3 years ago this month . She had congestive heart failure. I bought this lilly because Becky loved Tiger Lillies. I know this one isn't a Tiger Lilly but it is close enough. I put it in my flower garden outside of my kitchen window.I knew I could enjoy looking at it there when it bloomed.But shortly after I planted it,it just disappeared and I thought a squirrel had ate the bulb or something had got it. It made me very sad for a few days,then I got over it.
So what to my wondering eyes should appear last week ? YES ! my Becky flower has made a come back ! Isn't she pretty ? I am so thrilled about my Becky flower.
I sure do miss my Becky, we were friends for 27 years. We have laughed alot and cried even more together over those 27 years. I remember the day I told her that I had esophagus cancer.I had dreaded telling her so bad because she wasn't a well person at all herself. She cried and cried and yelled NO, oh God NO ! She had me crying too and she started praying for me over the phone.
Then 9 months later I got a call from one of her daughters telling me that Becky wasn't going to make it that I better go see her because they were taking her off of life support the next morning. I didn't know Becky was in the hospital. I hadn't talked to her in about 2 weeks.It was now my turn to say NO !
I went to see Becky and she couldn't talk because of the tube in her throat .When she seen me tears ran out of the sides of her eyes.I got to tell Becky how much I loved her that night,oh how I miss that girl.
She passed away the next morning morning, her daughter told her it was ok to go on, that Jesus was standing in the middle of the river waiting on her. It almost broke my heart that day.But I will see Becky again one day.
This is why this flower means so much to me now.I love ya'll .
