Joy in the little things <3

Have you ever noticed that the things you love the most are often the most fleeting? Tulips. I adore them. Any color, any stage of growth, any location…. well, especially in a vase on my desk. {compliments of Floral Creations by Tanika here in Lindstrom!} They have such an elegant quality and the coloring is rich and diverse. While still closed they encase mystery and suspense, making you wonder what treasure is hidden inside. When they open its almost as if they are welcoming me in, begging to be admired and enjoyed. When I first placed these beautiful purple tulips on my desk corner, I never imagined the stunning turquoise that would be revealed inside. Really, this can be compared to so many other areas in our lives. Children. I love mine to pieces. Every age/stage has been an adventure. Each day they reveal something new to me about their character and who they are destined to become. And, childhood is fleeting….my oldest is finishing her Junior year in high school. Really? Senior year this fall? Where did the time go. She is becoming her own woman, and I admire and enjoy her. So, all that to say, remember to find joy in the little things in life. Enjoy each day, each challenge, each growing opportunity, each experience. Enjoy the people in your life, the beauty and treasure hidden in each person you encounter.
