Daffodils....and a beaut cause!!

The 27th August 2010 (last Friday here in Australia) was "Daffodil Day"..... a day held once each year to raise money for much needed cancer research....such a wonderful, wonderful cause.

So when I ducked out from work at lunch time to buy my lunch and I saw the street-side "Daffodil Day" stall in our shopping village I couldn't help but buy some....because you see...not only are they one of my favourite flowers the cause has touched me personally on a few levels over recent years...

Thanks to the progress made in cancer research and it's treatment I am still able to hug my dad and tell him that I love him and also still have my young nephew here to watch grow into a young man.

Sadly the same outcome is not shared by all who this cruel disease affects and a couple of years back we were forced to say goodbye to a dear friend..a wonderful lady who unfortunately was unable to be helped in her fight....

So as I look at these beautiful golden yellow daffodils I have mixed emotions....both happy and sad thoughts, but above all a great appreciation for the cause that they so wonderfully support!

Till next time.....
