When it hit me this last weekend that I have basically "checked out" on doing the things I love to do because I've been so overwhelmed with other things, I decided I needed to slow myself down, enjoy my life again - not just rush from one thing to the next.
Enjoying God's creation, being reminded of His imagination, His beauty is just the perfect way to do that. Right now my lilacs and Azaleas are blooming, my roses are budding and all sorts of bushes and plants I haven't learned the names of yet are adorning themselves with beautiful flowers so quickly I'm sure a dozen more popped open as I wrote this sentence. I look out my office window at pink... pink... white.... My pictures today are from last year because I haven't pulled out my camera yet this year but the view hasn't changed much (except the iris' aren't blooming quite yet.).
