Thankful {things I love} Thursday ...

Bouquets of roses are lovely ...
but none compare to a carefully chosen,
hand picked bouquet
of lovely yellow dandelions
by your grand baby ♥
brightening my kitchen table
& heart today.
***
A garden of love
grows
in a grandmother's
heart

That is so precious Deb!... and you are right, nothing can compare to a handpicked little bouquet filled with love from your sweet grand baby... what a pretty painting that would make as well... (I'm sure you are already planning on doing that!)... xoxo Julie Marie

My children always gave me little bouquets of dandelions ~ it is so lovely to have them on my kitchen table again after all those years ♥

You're so right - nothing could compare to this heartfelt bouquet. Dandelions are misunderstood!
