Today I bought myself Gerbera Daisies. I’ve been buying myself flowers quite frequently, so this might not seem like a big deal, but it is!
Gerbera Daisies used to be my favorite flower. I had pink ones as my wedding flower. In the early years, he used to buy me daisies.
I’ve been walking by daisies in the store each time I buy flowers, refusing to buy them for myself. I had determined that I never wanted Gerbera Daisies again.
Today they didn’t have the bouquets that I usually buy. But they had daisies, and they were on sale.
I stood there staring at those flowers for a minutes. Then I walked away from them, and then I walked back, several times.
Then I thought to myself, “Am I going to let him ruin something I love? Am I going to forever avoid anything that I associate with him?” I realized that that’s not the way I want to heal! I don’t want to be triggered by things that remind me of him. I don’t want to miss out on people, places, and things, just because I somehow connect them to him.
Now I’m sitting here, staring at these daisies, that are part of my healing process. I’m not sure that they’re my favorite anymore, but I’m enjoying them anyway.
I will choose to enjoy them, because they are a beautiful part of God’s creation, and I won’t let anyone or anything detract from that!
