Today I have little words to say besides I am grateful. I’m actually overwhelmed with gratitude. For not only all the beauty that surrounds me, the blessings sprinkled into my life and the people that I have in it but also for the little things like getting flowers from my umpire. I LOVE flowers and there is nothing better than fresh pop of colorful wildflowers on my desk from my someone special to help get me through a long day at work.
After getting my camera out to capture my “freeze frame time” moment, I started to appreciate the texture, color and petals of the roses. Then my mind drifted away like it normally does….
These particular roses are called Konfetti Bi-Color roses. My dad use to own a flower shop and these were his favorite. I remember the flower shop did a beautiful casket piece made of them for his funeral and the shop owner told me he use to call them kangaroo paws or something close to that. I carried that close in my heart and even planted an orange rose bush at my house to remind me of him.
Today I am grateful for all the people I have in my life, still physically here or not, and for the little things in life that sneak up and remind me of them. I carry you in my heart.
