after all these years

you may say this is no big deal.  after all it's just a lilac.  but i have waited 28 years for these blooms.

even though the tree never bloomed, i couldn't leave it behind when we moved house - twice - because it was a gift from my daughter on my first mothers day.

never let it be said that i do not understand what commitment means nor underestimate the joy that waiting so long for something you know can happen will bring when it finally does...

  2. Congratulations! It goes to show that good things come to those who wait...and wait...and wait. What a beautiful reward for your loyalty and hope in this tree.

  3. I know I'm having kind of an emotional day - but this brought a smile to my cheeks and a tear to my eye :)
