Today, I just wanted to get some flowers into your day.
Sometimes we need a break to simply look at something beautiful and remember that beauty and goodness is always happening.
Sometimes we need a reminder to pause and notice beauty and goodness, especially when we are caught up in our own busyness, suffering, drama, or the latest news cycle.
Sometimes we just need to share good, easy things with each other even when (or especially when) we don’t feel well mentally or physically. Maybe today we don’t need another recommendation on how to feel better or tips to declutter the kitchen. Today, we may only need something good and easy.
Sometimes we need permission to enjoy the good stuff even if other things in our lives or the world are stressful, hard, scary or otherwise crappy. Things can be stressful AND joyful, hard AND heart-warming, scary AND funny, crappy AND cozy. We get to enjoy the good in the midst of the not so good. We get to enjoy the good stuff anytime we want.
If you need a break, or a reminder, something good and easy, or permission to enjoy goodness and beauty anytime you want, here are some flowers for you.
