Mom said that about today's rain. "It's raining." she said. "That's a mixed blessing. My flowers need it but I can't work outside in it."
"hmmmm," I thought to myself. "Does everyone interprate mixed blessings as a ying yang sort of thing? Or do other's also think of it as more than one blessing all at once?"
I grew up understanding it to be one opposed to the other. But I have often wondered if that is what it is supposed to mean.
Mom made a bunch of various types of floral flowers. I got them cropped and ready to list in supplies at Etsy.
She also finished some more decorator pillows. They are so sweet! I just love her pillows! She has a knack for putting the right flowers together with the right colors.
