Today is the first anniversary of my friend Rhonda's death. She had cystic fibrosis, and we were blessed to have her for 37 years. She never complained and loved everybody. During her last year of life, she was a foster mother to a five year old girl and worried more about the child than she ever did about herself. Because of a double lung transplant, Rhonda had nine years of good health. She donated her organs, and doctors were able to use her eyes to give two people the gift of sight. Rhonda loved daisies, and it comforts me to think of two people looking over fields of daisies with Rhonda's gift. 

There was a tribute to Rhonda in the local paper today. The message: live, enjoy the daisies, feel blessed.
