I went outside to just take a breather and I saw butterflies dancing around my flowers. I had to smile at their beauty and how they just seem happy to me. Just fluttering around and ignoring everything around them. The sound of men building a home across the street. The little dog Lucifer who is barking his fierce words or maybe joy at the World around him. Cats trying to catch them but they fly out of reach. Regardless, they just seem to be creatures that let nothing sway them from their mission. I think I should learn from these awe inspiring creatures.
When I am at extreme anxiety, I love the time of year when I can plant a garden. I love the ones I plant that are already in bloom, I love watching the seedlings that I collect each year from my Zinnias and Marigolds as they sprout and grow. Then I have my Perennials that come back every year that are not flowers. Ferns, Hostas and a gamble on the Lantanas. I adore seeing the Butterflies and Dragonflies as they fly about and pick where they will land. I even have a Hummingbird that visits here. lol. The renewal of life in these beautiful flowers gives me a renewal of hope. Have a great day/evening where ever you are! 🙂
