Among Thorns.

I made a bold decision.

I bought some dirt.
Flower seeds.
And a small yellow flower pot.

I'm growing daisies.

I hate flowers.

But I'm trying.

I've been taking one picture every few days to watch the progress.
I'm amazed at these things.
They are growing.

But surely.

I honestly don't know what I expected.

They're doing what they were created to do.

It's the silliest thing.
I feel completely ridiculous.
But they make me feel like a little kid.

I check on them every morning at the kitchen window sill where they sit.
And genuinely become excited at their simple progress.

What sweet little flowers.
I sound absurd.

But I'm learning.
And that's a good thing.

I appreciate how I'm being taught some of the deepest lessons in the most precious ways.

"Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow. They neither toil nor spin..."
