December’s “You Deserve A Bouquet Today” contest winner is Dena. Dena’s sister Leann nominated her to win and wrote this about her sister:
“Daily routines are never so simple, when a child you have had a stroke and is crippled. Dena, my sister, you are an inspiration. I know it is hard to deal with Sarah's condition. Here are some flowers to let you know I care. With your girls I hope you do share.”
As I pulled up to the winners house today, I saw 2, beautiful red-headed faces waiting patiently in the window.(I guess they were expecting me). They were off from school and they knew that their mom was getting a “special delivery”.
Dena was surprised and excited about the flowers (so were the girls who were jumping up and down saying “mommy won! mommy won!”).
Dena and I both teared up when I read the note her sister submitted. Sarah, Dena’s daughter was in the living room with a wide, happy smile on her face!
I can’t imagine the challenges associated with caring for a child with special needs. Reading about Sarah’s story on her website/blog, I was instantly struck by how much this family loves each other and what a dedicated, loving mom Dena is to all her girls.
I am so happy that I was able to bring flowers to this super, deserving mom! Congratulations Dena! You Deserve a Bouquet Today!
