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!"
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.
