With the promise of Spring around the corner, the Iris bulbs in the yard are beginning to break through.
This image is one I took in 2015, in keeping with my promise that no flowers will come into the house without being photographed. I simply added some thoughts to the image.
Did I mention we have snow flurries here today? I’m not a fan – haha! Just sayin.’
Wishing you all a remarkable Spring!
Be good to yourself and each other. Namaste’
I have no idea what these flowers are because (as I told you before) I am not a botanist. Ha! Isn’t that the truth! I have only one living plant in my whole house … a pothos vine (very hearty, but I do talk to it and thank it for being in my life).
With that said, I believe plants and flowers to be nature’s gifts to all of us. And I seem to be noticing their growth more than usual. Is it the hot weather? Or am I becoming more conscious of growth in general? Nature HAS turned up the heat lately, even here in the Northwest. But I’m also noticing a “newness” about human beings as well. Encounters with most people these days seem to be more patient, kind and compassionate. Maybe it’s because I’ve given myself a permission slip to embrace the interactions I have with others, even the ones that aren’t quite what I’d like them to be. It’s OK. It’s all OK. Each is on her/his own journey and yet I know we are all connected. Namaste’
Today’s photo is of another section of my vision board and the final one I’ll be posting. The rest of it is for my eyes only … sorry!
Today was also the first day of my training to become a hospice volunteer and I have to say that I believe this will be a very powerful leg of my journey. I have the feeling I’m going to learn more about myself than I ever have so far.
Learning the history of how hospice was conceived was amazing! I’m not going to share it here but if you’re interested, there’s lots of information about it on the internet. I also met some wonderful people who all share pretty much the same reasons for doing this as me … to give back in some way that makes a difference. As the photo below states … “You can still get goose bumps.” I did today. Namaste’
