There are so many ordinary days now . . .  I often forget to count the blessings. 

sunflower-february-2017

and then the phone rings and I have an amazing conversation filled with joy  – a blooming friendships that started long ago . . .  and then out of the blue a text filled with love.

the tears are from the onions I’m chopping for homemade chicken soup for my sick little dancer & dinner tonight . . not from the love filled text. No, not me.

AND

then I turn to see this beauty – sitting in the dark while sunlight shines all around it.

I don’t know what it is about dead sunflowers I love so much.

They call me.

Life is funny – filled with love and blessings even when you don’t look.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

great hugs from the brown eyed girl

snap chats from my girl friend giving me glimpses of their day

holding hands with that fisherman

small conversations with a stranger

big smiles from people I don’t even know

phone calls from charming telling about his day

learning with friends

text messages out of the blue

long conversations
