Take time to enjoy the beauty around you!
These are the bulbs I planted in November in remembrance of Belle. They are much smaller than I was anticipating, but am THRILLED to have them. Although the flowers look delicate, they don't reflect Belle at all. Belle was a hardy dog who loved life so much. Like Belle, we humans are much stronger than we sometimes give (and allow) ourselves credit for. Despite all the bad that can be happening around us, we must remind ourselves that "this too shall pass"... not that it will pass easily or painlessly.
Enjoy the beauty around you!!
