I'm loving the spring-time air these days. Yesterday afternoon I went for a walk in sandals, without a coat, just a light sweater. So wonderful! I think I can stop taking my Vitamin D until the dark days of fall come around again. But I won't think about that now. I'm just enjoying the warmth and sunshine - and these beautiful ranunculus that I planted on my patio. They smile at us through the patio door and while we eat breakfast and dinner, we smile right back at them.
I'm sure you've all heard the expression "Bloom Where You're Planted." It's a pithy reminder to me to be contented with my lot in life, and to use the gifts God gives me to influence the world in which I live. Well, here's a brave daffodil, blooming in the compost bin - a bright spot of yellow and green against the brown. That's blooming wherever you're planted! So when I'm in the "compost bin of life" - I hope I remember this daffodil and bloom no matter what!
