Hello sweetpeas! It is so lovely to see you! It's true..you are my sunshine... you make me happy when skies are gray"
Oh dear, I've been thinking again...sometimes for hours in the middle of the night. I have been thinking about happiness & goodness & kindness & friendship. And I am thinking that just perhaps, happiness isn't something always just a little bit out of reach; something that we maybe, one day might have, but instead, it just could be... something that we can collect!! Yes that's right, just like a honey bee, we can go about & collect it.
Truth is, lots & lots of the colour of our lives has been woven in by the everyday tiny choices that we all make, day in & day out. I am choosing today to bring you a basket of kind thoughts & goodness.
I want to tell you about Norapearl & the "beautiful bouquet of human flowers". Have you ever heard of anything so adorable?
Oh there you are sweetpeas!
Norapearl is a tiny elderly woman who lives all alone & spends her days tending to her flowers. She was once asked to leave her church because she confessed to believing in miracles...can you imagine that! Just last summer, Norapearl befriended Rachael & her two lovely girls, waving & calling out to them as they went by "what a beautiful bouquet of human flowers". I would love you to pop in & visit Rachael here & read the rest of the story of Norapearl & her dogs Lady Alice & Cordelia. This gorgeous little tale is told over at little flower on the hill.
So often we are waiting for the day to come when life will be ok but really, truly we can start right this minute by being kind to others.
We can follow a blog that has just been born. We can comment on a post just to encourage another. We can send a card to someone to say that we care or that they are in our thoughts today.
We can feed a kitten...because it must be hungry & it's nice to share.
Come on hop up here with me & dream awhile, it's such a lovely day..
Now smell the lavender, isn't it delightful.
Just for you, sunshine..
As Rachael said after meeting Norapearl "I walked the rest of the way home with sunbeams shooting out of me every which way- a perfectly natural reaction to having somebody else's soul-glitter stuck to you"
