What great, peaceful therapy it is to spend a few hours out in the sunshine, digging in dirt and planting life and making a yard beautiful! The thing I love most about flowers is the beautiful color that they bring to my heart. A flower is kind of like our hearts if you think about it. It needs nuturing, feeding, sunshine and when it is given those things, it can produce such beauty, touching the lives of all those around it.
Vivid pinks, yellows, oranges, reds, greens, purples and so many more in-betweens decorate my yard. Jinaea and Kyler helped me with the planting and weeding. It was an awesome time talking about roots and leaves and petals and being gentle (for Kyler's sake). I am sure the flowers will show their forgiveness for me letting Kyler hold them in his sometimes gentle, sometimes not so gentle way.
I am now sitting here waiting for a fun, sweet, wonderful, loving friend/cousin to arrive. I am so excited that she is coming!!! Linda Mae (aka Ellie Mae to us) is going to be here in about an hour. EEKKKK!
We are going to do girly things, play with kids, hang out, watch movies, go for walks, cry and probably laugh till we almost pee our pants. What fun it will be!!!
Life is good and filled with flowery, sunshiny joy today and for that I am thankful.
