This past month, I filled the patio with herbs and flower and watched the blooms slowly unfold to reveal their radiant petals. The delicate bursts of pink, red and yellow wave each time they’re caressed by the cool breeze or visited by a passing bee. Between the baby quail, playful ground squirrels and thriving garden, I have so many small reasons to smile. That being said, March has been a rough month health-wise. I’m just plain tired.
However, each day I watch as poppies, geraniums and nasturtiums force their way out of a protective encasement, bravely opening themselves up to a brand new world. It’s my hope that I, too, will soon emerge from my current struggle, like a bold and beautiful flower, having grown and improved for struggle.
