Imagine the delight to discover a massive bouquet of sunflowers sitting in my kitchen when my husband and I returned home from our last trip. This thoughtful gift from our friend put a instant smiles on our faces. Such a mass of bold color. Aren’t sunflowers one of the happiest flowers around? And, isn’t it an even happier circumstance to have dear friends in our lives? I think, as we age, those friendships become even more significant because staying socially connected is so crucial to healthy aging. Besides, genuine friendships just feel so darned good. I sure hope you have someone in your life who brings you sunflowers!
