Last week we raised the question of why dandelions are the official flower of the military child. Here's the answer for you:
I'm calling the tie for Shirlee's answer:
"Because a dandelion is exactly all those things, bright and bold to the eye, strong and resilient to the elements in which it is dealt, soft and tender to touch."
"I'm guessing the wind blowing them has something to do with the dandelion as flower of the military child."
So, ladies, you get to pick my next couple blog topics! Speak now or forever hold your peace. Also, asking that I not blog at all is definitely an option (pick that one! pick that one!--then I'll take the week off and do nothing but read novels!).
Here's to our dandelion military children! Too many exclamation points!
