A Special Gift

A few weeks back I met with a sweet new friend for lunch.  She met me at the studio and we rode together from there.  When she walked in the door, she was carrying a beautiful vase of fresh flowers!  I was so surprised, they had really brightened my day!  When I left to go home that evening, I brought them home and they have been sitting on my coffee table ever since!  The original hydrangeas were starting to droop after a week or so.  So, we picked a couple new fresh ones from my mom's garden.  Then, as Richard was driving home from work, he saw some in a neighbor's yard.... yeah, I'm sure you can already see where this is going.  He snuck one from her bush too!  I know, that probably wasn't very honest of us, but I'm sure another will grow back in its place!  :)  Needless to say, this beautiful bunch of fresh flowers has been my daily encouragement.  I know it sounds silly, but this is what I see every morning when I sit on my couch and sip my coffee.  Its just a beautiful reminder of beautiful life can be!

With all of the many changes going on in this world, there are still so many wonderful people, friends and blessings to be thankful for!  Sometimes, you might have to look a little harder, but they're there!  So, thank you Mandy for brightening my day with these beautiful flowers!

See what I mean, aren't they so pretty!
