Pink Think: “You’re only here for a short visit. Don’t hurry, don’t worry. And be sure to smell the flowers along the way.” – Walter Hagen

I was driving down the freeway worried about a few things, intent on getting home.
Then I saw the lady beside a parked car. She had a bright pink shirt and was cutting an armful of sunflowers that grew wild along the side of the road.
And I saw all of a sudden that the roadside had hundreds of beautiful yellow sunflowers dancing in the breeze, against a backdrop of gray dessert soil.
I had been too preoccupied to notice.
Thank you, Sunflower Lady, for the reminder.
freckles on my youngest’s face, and kissing them!
August temperatures in September
waking up to the sound of a child practicing the piano
a bite of strawberry danish twist
the promise of a nap on a quiet Sunday afternoon
coming home to the smell of crockpot roast
my oldest helping her brother at a horse show
joy on my son’s face for his best effort
What are YOUR flowers?
