I was counting down the hours, and sleeping well, which surprised me, and I got a call. My tattoo artist is in the hospital, so now I will have to wait until Tuesday. I hope he feels better soon, and I am dedicated to him because around here good artists are hard to find and he is one of the best. I have waited 15 years, I guess a couple of more days is not going to hurt. Thank you all for your lovely comments, I am glad you like the idea
I love you Nanny, and tomorrow I will prove it forever. Since you died in 1991 I have always wanted to honor you, I did not know how. I finally found it, and I am so glad I did.
I posted this to let all my friends know what I was doing and why I might be out of commission for a couple of days.
Tomorrow I am getting a tattoo, of course I will post the pic ASAP!!! I know some of you think this may be drastic, but I have always wanted one, but could not think of a meaning until now, I don’t know what took me so long to think of it.
This is why..
It’s kind of a long story, one day I was having a ‘I want to kill myself" days, this was back in 2005, and I went to my grandmothers grave because I didn’t know what else to do. I was crying, and I just asked her to send me a sign to keep going. So as I said it this old, and ugly little daisy (fake) fell onto my leg, kind of freaked me out. I kept… See More it. So I am getting a tattoo of a Daisy, 3 actually, one bigger then the other, the bigger one representling my grandmother, and that will have a petal floating away, and two small ones for mom and I, since I was raised by my mom and grandmother. The stems of the daisies all come together and tie at the end.
I was getting scared tonight and then I looked up the meaning of the daisy and it only reaffirmed why I am doing this, it is the perfect description of my love for my Nanny who passed away when I was 14 in 1991.
Among the flower meanings daisy represents purity and innocence. The specialty of the daisy flower meanings is that there are no negative meanings to it. The meanings of daisy flower are all positive in nature. In the 17th century, Carolis Linnaeus gave daisy its unique name.
A common daisy flower meaning is innocence. Devoid of any sin or guilt, daisy is the perfect symbol of innocence. Daisy is often used while confessing undying love. Though the use of flowers for proposing love may be ancient but daisy captures the language of love best with its silence.
So I am sure this time tomorrow I will be in some pain, but I will always have my Nanny with me.
I thought this pic I took last summer was kind of cool because it has some raindrops on it, which I think represents some of the tears I may have tomorrow, everyone thinks I am a wimp and I will not go through with it. Am I scared? Yes, will it be worth it to me? YES! I know it is the right thing to do and I am also very excited!
Love You Nanny, hope you are with me tomorrow to hold my hand!
