Flowers

My heart has wings and I can fly
I’ll touch every star in the sky
So this is the miracle that I’ve been dreaming of
Mmm mm mmm… –
Cinderella

It’s been a long, challenging couple of weeks. There have been ups and there have been downs. I have struggled and I have learned. I have both fallen and stood tall. Sometimes these events happened all in the same day. Sometimes they occurred so far apart – or so it seemed.

Do you ever have those moments, when you feel invisible or maybe even low… And someone does or says something to lift you up?

Yeah… So that happened…

But then

My day was made… Flowers… I love flowers. I keep fresh cut flowers for the house often. But, the last time I was given flowers – I cannot recall! This past Valentine’s Day, I received flowers in a simple, clear, plastic cup. It was one of the sweetest moments, and one of the best gifts.

I had no real plans to celebrate – the kids weren’t going to be home (weren’t home). Although I accepted the invitation for dinner and a movie, I thought to cancel – it had been quite the week… But, I didn’t. I’m glad that I didn’t.

Sometimes, it’s the simple things – like receiving flowers – that remind me to slowdown and breathe and help me to remember that life is indeed beautiful.
