The Power of a Flower

Just when I thought I was at my breaking point.

Just when I thought I could not handle one. more. thing.

My neighbor shows up with an armful of these.



Peonies.

One of my favorite flowers.



And all is right in the world.

I was blog hopping and noticed your great blog! My son broke his arm about a month ago and had the same issues with sports!?! Love your post about the flowers - how do friends always know? I want to BE that friend. Thanks for the smile today!
