Earth to Carol

Today, my work was physically hard, and the temps were hot & the humidity was 90%. The pressure of the world was heavy on my heart as I drove home. I entered my driveway, realizing all the things that I had to do yet before supper.
Then to my right I saw it, I don't know how, was it fate or just luck, but there in front of me by the pond was my iris. Now I am sure you say big deal. Well it was, I stopped the car, walked over to the iris in wonder. Was it true, was the center iris blue in a field of yellow iris's. Oh my gosh, yes and it was the first year this had happened.

I feel to my knees and a tear fell down my face. This was the earths way of telling me to take a breath and enjoy, once again, my little piece of the earth. I was home, I was ok, I was loved. And now you know you too are loved by the earth's willingness to give you something without anything in return.
Have a great day.


  1. Life is indeed wonderful..with God's grace!

  2. I am always in awe that after a long, cold, stark winter that nature brings forth such life, such gorgeous flowers. It is truly a miracle.

  3. oh that is so awesome
    thanks for sharing that

  4. I know the feeling. I was so excited when my peonies bloomed this year. The seemingly simple things in life can bring so much joy.

  5. I feel like I was kissed by an angel every time a rose blooms on my rosebush, so I give it to someone else, to make them feel blessed.
