A little piece of heaven today, I found myself in the most beautiful flower shoppe, Argyle Florists. When you walk in you enter a room filled with flowers and the smell of fresh cut roses.  A few steps in and you are in an amazing green house filled with a beautiful pond with coy fish and a bird in a beautiful cage. Incredible statues all over, I could have been happy in this one room for the rest of my life. I thought to myself how fortunate to find this place, I felt like I had found a magic garden. At that very moment I forgot about my day, it didn't matter the circumstances that brought me there because I was there. It was like the light at the end of the tunnel.

No matter your circumstances there are things to look forward too, so I thank Ricky who brought me to the flower shop to buy his wife's beautiful bouquet. After he had to wait for me at the gas station where my car had been towed. He had picked me up on the Parkway,  my car's transmission had blown - I was stuck. At 41, I had already learned that I didn't like to be stuck!

Tomorrow I wake up and fix yesterday. I will remember the little piece of heaven I found and look for it again in something new. A new venture, stolen moment, special place that makes me feel alive. It gets me through the days as I build myself back up. If I teach my kids anything I will teach them that lesson.

"Look I yell to Lily, look!", at Mommy's car on the flatbed.

"WOW! How cool! Mommy's car never got a ride like that before today! My car is so lucky! "

Lily giggles,"Yes, Mommy it is so lucky"! 

Lily smiles and I know I have her believing me. My job is to make her believe.
Life is beautiful ~Even in hard times!

  7. When we slow down enough to see through our child's eyes, we put the life in living. It's too easy to get caught up in the chaos - especially if it's spiraling out of control. Kudos to you Jenn for making the most of the moment and reminding the rest of us to do it too!
