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 .

Theresa, I'm so glad you have your Becky flower to remind you of your sweet friend. I'm also so thankful that years have passed and you are still here to tell us about it!

A lily is a favorite flower of mine. When I receive a bouquet of flowers, I always love it when it contains just one lily! Yours are beautiful! I am glad that they remind you of your wonderful friendship with your friend.

What a beautiful reminder of your friend and the friendship you shared. Sometimes we need those things to help us get through the lonliness and the pain of separation. You were a good friend, and friends like you are not as available anymore, sadly.

Hello dear Theresa, Your Becky story and lilies made me cry too. You told the story 'so well' and it really moved my heart. I am thrilled that your Becky lily came back. They are a gorgeous color. A dear friend is such a treasure. I am sorry you lost your dear friend. No matter how long it has been, the wonderful memories will keep her in your heart.

We are having the most fun on our trip. It is beautiful here but I still love my mountains more. On Sunday we leave for Yellowstone.

Love you...Jeanne

Good Morning!

I understand you, Theresa. Many my friends passed away.
Very beautiful reminder,
I was touched.

Have a blessed weekend!

Michelle said...

Hi Theresa,
I'm sorry about your friend. Friends are gifts from God himself, and someday, you will be reunited with Becky. I'm so happy your flower returned. It is beautiful.

I lost my dad 39 years ago this month (actually died on the 26th, buried on the 28th). It is wonderful to know that we will see our loved ones again.

Have a wonderful weekend.
be blessed,
Michelle

Joyce said...

Oh Theresa! This breaks my heart! I am so sorry. It's so ironic that your Becky flower just chose now to bloom. She's thinking of you, ya know? You are so fortunate to have had a friend like that through your life. You were both blessed with each other. You will see her again and how beautiful that will be! You are in my prayers, Theresa.

Theresa, I'm so sorry about your loss, but I'm glad that your Becky flower bloomed again for you! It's mighty pretty.

I hold on to the fact that Jesus made it possible for us to be with so many people we love once again. I'm glad He was waiting there for her in the middle of that river. If I saw Him (and I will one day), I think I would walk on that water to get to Him! :-)

XO,

Sheila

Diane said...

What a lovely tribute to your wonderful friend. I know how much you miss your precious friend and I know the loneliness and yearning for just one more chance to talk to her, to see her smile, to hear her laugh. I am so thankful your Becky flower has ressurected, just as will your Becky one fine day!

Many hugs........

Diane

Your lilies are beautiful and your friendship is even more beautiful. I'm glad that you're planning on spending an eternity with her.

Kim's Treasures said...

Oh my goodness, I am so glad your flower came back so you can see it and remember your friend! What a sweet and sad story! I can only imagine how much you miss her!

I hope the rain in your area goes away so your garden can make it!

Have a great night!!!
Kim

bj said...

Oh, Theresa, I am bawling my eyes out and I just now got my makeup on because I am on my way out the door to a wedding shower. Will have to make a few repairs on the eyes !!
I know how much you miss her..my best friend and sister in law died over a year ago and I miss her so much, I can't stand it. I cry for her all the time, just like you do for your friend. O, how hard it is to have someone you love pass away..we just never get over it.
Your flower is lovely...just as I know your friend was...
and...YOU are such a jewel. I am so glad to have you in my blog life....

It is so comforting when we have something that reminds us of someone special in our lives. Flowers are a gift from God and so are our friendships. :)

Busy Grandma Elsie said...

oh Teresa I am so sorry about your friend... But you know you can go be with her again someday & that will give you something to look forward to in this life.
Today I went to the movie "UP" with my daughter's family and we thought it would be a funny cartoon. It was so sad I cried & so did my daughter. . It reminded me of losing my dear friend & hubby 22 months ago.
But we have our good memories...
Blessings to your memory.
Elsie <><

Theresa *hugs*
How lucky you were to have such a wonderful friend. Not everyone has a change to have a friend like that in their lifetime...and I can imagine how you miss her. Its so special that you planted the flower to remind you of her...and to have it come back like that...
I'm so happy about that....
I hope you have a good day today Theresa.
