Mother’s Day, May 13, 2018
I’m aware that I share flower photos on here more than I (strategically) should, but I just don’t care enough to care that much. And I didn’t expect to walk out of our favorite grocery store with all sorts of flowers, tomato plants, flower pots, and wind chimes, but there we were pushing our cart half food, half spring. . .full joy!
We spent the afternoon with fingers in soil and hands in life and hearts filled with brave, new adventure. May husband and I have wanted to start a garden, but don’t have the means quiet yet to leap into all of that. So we are filling our porch with all manner of life and loving every minute of it.
Living is really quite ordinary, but sometimes it’s taking brave new adventures, celebrating unexpectedly, and watching big life happen in little corners and small spaces.
I’ve got so many more thoughts on this, but I also wanna get back to the plant stuff and join my husand in the rest of our Sunday adventure.
Also, thinking of all who are simultaneously holding much grief + celebration today. Live this day full in God’s strength whether it be in grief or joy or both. Pour out your heart. Rest in God. Laugh in joy. Whatever your today is. . .let it be that and let it be lived in the absolute trust of our Life-Giver.
