All You Need Is Love

All you need is love, love.
Love is all you need.
The Beatles

When love takes a tangible form like roses and tulips and daisies, you can bask in that love for days. Family and friends have been so kind to send me bouquets of beauty during the last month of health challenges. Flowers greeted me on the doorstep when I arrived home from surgery last week. More came the next day by surprise delivery. They are bouying me up, reminding me that people out there do indeed love me. When you’re recuperating, you may need meds and care and someone to fill your ice water. (Thank you to my husband, best nurse ever!) But in another sense, the love you know is swirling out there is what you most need to pull you along to recovery. Here’s the basket of cheer sent by my daughter and son-in-law.

The tulips opened up the next day and caught the morning sun.

I love yellow roses!

How about you? Have you been given a tangible reminder lately that someone loves you?

Linking up with Image-in-ing, Little Things Thursday, Wednesday Around the World, The Good, the Random, the Fun, Through My Lens, and Life Thru the Lens. Also linking up with the song-inspired party, Song-ography, where my song choice is “All You Need Is Love” by The Beatles.

Oh I totally understand this post. When I had surgery last year, the flowers that showed up meant so very much to me. I do hope you are healing well, and I am keeping you in my prayers.
