05 Aug Mallow Syrian Flower means Consumed by Love
Granddaddy’s old car, Grandma’s egg custard pie, these are memories that I always hold dear to my heart. When God made Grandparents, he really made something special because they are always filled with lots of love and lots of wisdom. I remember the time my friend Connie and I went to my Grandparents house on the farm. We had such fun. Grandma had a no running in the house rule and one time when I was playing with Connie, we got carried away and we were running in the house. Well I ran smack into my Grandma’s washtub and knocked my two front teeth out of my mouth. I was afraid that when my Dad saw it I was going to be in big trouble for disobeying the no running in the house rule. But when Daddy asked me why I was smiling funny, Grandma jumped right in to save the day and said, let her be son, let her be. The Mallow Syrian Flower in all of its splendid glory means consumed by love and I know beyond a shadow of doubt that I am too.
