Leave room in your day for joy and flowers
This year I wasn’t going to plant flowers in the flower beds in the front yard. This growing season I was only going to work on my writing and painting. There was no time in my day to plant flower seeds.
I forgot about flowers until I went to the hardware store to buy a paint roller. The hardware store had a sale on flower seeds. I bought three packages of Zinnia seeds with the paint roller.
I forgot to leave room in my day for flowers.
For joy and flowers.
Each day is a gift.
A present I forgot to open.
“When you do things from your soul, you feel a river moving in you, a joy.”
The kitchen counter is covered with dirty dishes, the chicken bones from last nights wings still on them. The frying pan is in the sink, bacon grease burned on the bottom of the pan. The dog still needs to be walked and I haven’t cleaned the seven litter boxes yet.
I planted flower seeds.
A little bit of joy.
Did you plant flower seeds this year? Do you leave room in your day for joy and flowers?
As always I love to hear from you. Click here to leave a comment.
