Houston widow sends valentines to other widows | khou.com

Moore said.So last year, with the goal of mending her broken heart, Moore went to Facebook, soliciting names and addresses.“I know that Valentine’s Day can be very lonely for someone who is recently widowed,” Moore wrote, “so if you have a friend who's recently widowed, I would love to send them a secret valentine.”Moore received 10 responses, so she sent out 10 boxes. Each contained a beautiful glass heart shaped magnet, a box of chocolates and a handwritten note.One recipient was Kimberly Hillman. She had recently lost her husband of 25 years, David, to cancer.“(He was an) amazing person,” Hillman said. “I miss every day.”Hillman described the past year as, “kind of like an adrenaline fog, I call it, where you’re getting through the first this, the first that.”Including the first Valentine’s Day. However, Hillman says Moore’s surprise was a happy one.Hillman shared the note which read, in part:“Hi, Kimberly, you don't know me, but we had a mutual friend who shared with me that your husband had passed away. I am so very sorry to hear that. Since I know that holidays can be hard I wanted to send you a little valentine.”“To get kindness and love from someone you've never even met is huge,” Hillman said. “It floored me. It was the nicest thing ever."This year, Moore is back at it again, but with a lot more packages. She received more than 100 requests.“The response was overwhelming,” Moore said.Moore is now thinking about turning this mission into a non-profit in hopes of cheering up as many widows or widowers as possible.“When we can help others feel good when they're not feeling so good inside...then that's a wonderful thing," she said.© 2018 KHOU...

Dried Flower May Be Linked to President Lincoln

Lincoln’s and may have been by his bedside when he died of a gunshot wound. General Haynie is thought to have given the rose to Mrs. James G. Elwood, whose husband was mayor of Joliet, Illinois. Elwood’s possessions were given to the historical society and stored away after it moved to its current building in 1971. The delicate dried flower will be put on limited display. Vasko added that the only other known flowers from Lincoln’s funeral are held in the Library of Congress. For more, go to “A Bold Civil War Steamer.”...

Between the Rows: Emily Dickinson's inspired world of poetry and flowers

This was not an unusual pastime for a girl during those times, but it indicates the start of her knowledgeable approach to gardening. A printed facsimile of that herbarium was published, and Harvard University, where the book now lives, has made it available to the public online at: bit.ly/2Dg82NO The NYBG exhibit was set up in the great Haupt Conservatory and presented a section of the house exterior, surrounded by garden beds separated by paths. The effect is that of a charming New England garden in spring with tulips, narcissus, forget-me-nots, primroses and lily of the valley blooming beneath lilacs, dogwoods and magnolias. In fact, many of the plants in her garden were ground covers which run so quickly over the ground, choking out weeds. There were occasional signs with names of flowers and appropriate poems: There I have ‘shares’ in Primrose “Banks” — Daffodil Dowries — spicey “stocks” — Dominions — broad as Dew Bags of Doubloons — adventurous Bees Brought me — from firmamental seas — And Purple — from Peru. People may sometimes think of Dickinson as a difficult poet, but I think this is a delightful poem touching on the way primroses and daffodils increase every year, and even the part bees play in the garden. Another poem, an ode to a dandelion, one of my favorite flowers, celebrates spring just as I do when I see the first dandelion. The Dandelion’s pallid Tube Astonishes the grass — And Winter instantly becomes An infinite Alas — The Tube uplifts a signal Bud And then a shouting Flower — The Proclamation of the Suns That sepulture is o’er. By chance a book about her gardens, with garden tips, “Emily Dickinson’s Gardens: A Celebration of a Poet and Gardener” by Marta McDowell, was given to me years ago. McDowell’s book concentrates on the garden and the flower poems that quite clearly tell of Dickinson’s planting chores, from planting seeds to harvesting of “grape and Maize.” This is an excellent book attaching the realities of the garden to Dickinson’s poems. Of course, in addition to gaining some insight into Emily Dickinson and her poetry, such exhibits and books supply a different kind of inspiration to us individually — plans for our own gardens.
