Bitter Sweet Daffodils


My Mother in Law has received the opportunity of a lifetime. An opportunity that she has worked very hard for. Not only is she graduating with her second Master’s Degree this month, but she has a new out of state job offer that is phenomenal ~ just like her.

As selfish as I feel, because I don’t want her to leave us I know none of us can clip her wings. I cry writing this…because I can’t explain how my heart can be happy for her yet sad because she is leaving us.

My Mother in Law’s strength and perseverance is amazing. She has inspired me to push on no matter what. Her life stories are amazing and I can see how they have molded her in to the strong woman she is today.

Beverley, I am wishing you all the best. As much as I want to hug you and not let you go. As much as I want my children to not go a day without seeing you I am hopeful that the lessons you instilled in me and Hubby will be instilled in them.

When you asked me to do your Birthday cake I was happy. I wanted this cake to represent how beautiful you are to us. You have been there for me since the day I moved here. I appreciate and love you and want all the best for you. Thanks for the inspiration, the support and the love.
