The Little Things

So very often the little things are really the big things.

During our recent trip to Florida I came down with bronchitis and was quite sick. I plugged along like a trooper as to not wreck the fun of the rest of the family. At one of our gas stops my kids left the van to stretch. They found little flowers and greens peeking out of the cracks of the concrete. They picked the little bits and presented me with a tiny bouquet. They had noticed my suffering and wanted me to feel better. Such a small gesture that filled my heart and stretched a smile across my face. Love is the best medicine.

May your day be filled with little blessings.

i hope you're mending well
and breathing deep
and feeling the long lasting
sweetness of that little love
offering poured out from
pure hearts in all the simple
ways comfort finds you.
big (and little) love to you,

Sorry things are so rough physically for you these days. I hope this passes quickly now. And yes, love is the best medicine. May you be showered in it.

I hope they continued to shower you with flowers and that you are all mended by now and able to enjoy some spring weather. I trust the flooding is past by now too. April was a very rough month for you and I'm sorry. Be well. Love.
