yellow and white cut flowers

It’s not a shot of me, but it does capture something that I strive to do… The photo is of a little bouquet that I made from clippings from our yard this summer. I tried to keep fresh cut flowers in our house throughout the season, and, when I was good about it, it really made me happy. I’m not usually good with the small, special things. I think there’s some part of my brain that feels like they’re a waste of time. But they’re not! I want to be better with the small specials – do more kind and gentle things for myself and for other people.
