My Beloved


My husband hated sunflowers. He thought they were so ugly. I on the other hand love them. A few weeks ago my husband pulled over during his busy work day and took these pictures and sent them to me.


These photos are so special to me now, after the fact, because three weeks later my husband took his own life. I didn’t even really appreciate this beautiful loving gesture until he was gone. Now these pictures mean everything to me. I remember having a conversation about why he would even pull over and do this.


It just so happens that the suicide support groups loge is a sunflower and here’s why;

Light after Loss chose the sunflower because they strive for the sunlight, but when it is dark, they lean into each other for energy. The flower that my husband thought was the ugliest thing created, has turned into my flower of hope. I see sunflowers everywhere now and there is such a peace that comes over me. I love my beloved and I desperately miss him.


Then your light will break forth like the dawn, and your healing will quickly appear; then your righteousness will go before you, and the glory of the Lord will be your rear guard. Isaiah 58:8

Stay blessed friends!
