Flowers and Me

You Are a Blue Flower

A blue flower tends to represent peace, openness, and balance.
At times, you are very delicate like a cornflower.
And at other times, you are wise like an iris.
And more than you wish, you're a little cold, like a blue hydrangea.
I never really thought of myself as a little cold and I'm definitely not wise or delicate. But more than anything in my life right now, I need peace, openness and balance.
I've defined openness as honesty, even though that may not be what the author of this BlogThing intended, because I've valued honesty my entire life yet have inexplicably found myself married to a man and the mother of a boy child who do not value honesty. Whereas my daughter will tell you the truth about something even if it is detrimental to her, the two men in my life lie about things that can be easily verified. I don't understand that and I don't like it.

my oldest son does that too (my middle son does not - he is like your daughter); my husband just chooses not to speak, if he did, I think he'd do the same as Primo. although he is brutally honest about things I DO WRONG.

Sigh.

Poor bb. Don't you hate the lying -- I just don't get it at all.
