it's not impossible for the pink flower!

You know the day's (...or week's) when we let ourselves think the worst?  Well it's been one of those 4 WEEKS for me!  I am not a fan of sob stories though, so I hope what inspired me to start smiling more will help you smile more too :]

This past week, while running errands with my girls, we found a little petunia growning in the middle of a parking lot.  It was hot, and you would think the heat alone would make it wilt...but NO!  This bright pink petunia was finding a way to grow, despite it's terrible surroundings.  It made me think of the challenging moments the last 4 weeks have brought me and my little family.  I immediately thought, "If that little flower can grow and show all its beauty in it's challenging life, then so can I!"
Yep, that's my cute & pink little inspiratioin right there!  I already 100% believed in taking joy in lifes little gifts, but now...I know, and that's a big fat difference!  Sometimes it takes all the stregnth we have to consider our challenges to be actual gifts.  But they are :]  I love my family, I love this little flower and I'm grateful we are living happily despite our hard times.
