Recently it seems that I am finding more and more solace in sitting alone on my patio surrounded by my plants. I find nature to be restorative in an unexplainable way. This morning as I went outside, these beauties brought a smile to my face. I felt as if they were there, standing tall, just to remind me – “It’s new day, a new beginning, with new possibilities, the sun is in the sky, there is breath in my lungs, and a beautiful, colorful world to greet me.” Thank you, my cheery, optimistic friend. I needed this reminder today.
