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.
