Mother’s Day

I gave myself a gift. After working early this spring to clear weeds from my garden, I was not satisfied with the results. The cold spring gave me time to get ahead, but the warmer weather brought with it additional weeds, and revealed a lot of messy beds. In addition, my tulips had been chewed to the ground, and most of the bulbs I planted have not bloomed.  I was feeling defeated.

Today I noticed the tulips that are blooming. Today I noticed the lilac bushes filled with fragrant blossoms. Today I noticed how all the fruit trees are bursting with color. I can see it all. How did I miss it?

I frequently have to remind myself that I have many wonderful gifts all around me that I just have to notice.
