Pink Azaleas for Hailey

April 10, 2010 at 4:29 PM 2 comments

Yesterday we planted our flowers, and we bought a special one for Hailey. I’d like to say we chose a type of flower that had a special meaning or symbolism associated with it, but we didn’t… We chose one based purely on its looks. We went not knowing what we could find for Hailey, but we knew it would be a special pink one. When we arrived at the store, we didn’t have to do much searching through the gigantic collection of colorful flowers. These special pink ones were the most beautiful of all.

I guess if I wanted to try to get all ‘meaningful’ – I could say the flowers seem delicate like Hailey. And apparently, the flowers blossom in the spring and are gone within a few weeks… a short, but beautifully bright life, like Hailey’s.

We placed Hailey’s flowers on the table on our front porch. We can see them when we pull up our driveway, we can see them from looking out our front window as we sit on our couch inside, and they can greet guests who come through our front door – hopefully bringing a bit of cheer to all who see them, including us.

    What beautiful flowers, as beautiful as your daughter. A good place to have them, so you can think of her “beauty” whenever you see them.
