May Flower Power: Lily of the Valley

LILYLilies were so revered by the ancient Greeks that they believed they sprouted from the milk of Hera, the queen of the gods. Long tied to the Virgin Mary, the white Madonna lily represents virtue, while the lily of the valley conveys sweetness and humility. In the language of flowers, this May birth flower expresses purity of heart, majesty and honor.

Lore has it that when Mary cried at the foot of her son’s cross, her tears turned to Lilies of the Valley. You too may shed a lot of tears this year, but remember that the Lily also signifies a return to happiness.

You will be happy. You’re beautiful the way you are.  You would be gilding the lily to think otherwise.
