day 215 || gratitudes
understanding when I changed plans at the last minute, new eyeglasses for a clearer picture, listening to the rain this morning as it hit our metal roof, a bit of a walk, along with some thunder, which made the dog want to run for home, the smell of these phlox, still, a long phone conversation with my sister, laugher and connection, potatoes and green beans from the garden for dinner. . .
It helps to see ourselves as flowers. If a flower were to push itself to open faster, which it can't, it would tear. Yet we humans can and often do push ourselves. Often we tear in places no one can see. ~ Mark Nepo
