Well, we survived the weekend. I told you that we were getting ready for yet another open house. What I didn't tell you was that we were also getting ready to do a flea market.
We thought it might be fun to make ourselves completely insane by trying to do both on the same weekend. It seemed like a good idea when we made the plans. We had to be out of the house anyway and we really needed to clean out a bunch of junk.
We managed to get everything done but I think the kids and I might stay in our jammies all day today. In light of that, today's post is simple and easy for me.
I just wanted to show you something that made me smile this weekend. I finally have a ton of things blooming in my yard. Like this.
And this. It's been so stinkin' cold here that everything is a least two weeks late.
Anyway, as I was grumpily (is that a word?) cleaning something on Friday afternoon, my 4-year old was running in and out of the house picking flowers and bringing them to me. Seeing his joy as he brought me each little treasure really lifted my spirits.
I have a bunch of small glass vases that I use when the kids pick dandelions, clover, grass and weeds and bring them to me with a huge smile on their faces. Don't you just love that?
Each vase only holds a few flowers so my son kept pulling out more and more to hold the treasures he was bringing me. I was setting each one on a tray on my kitchen table and before I know it, I had this.
It was completely unintentional but it was so beautiful. It almost felt like God used my child to give me a beautiful bouquet of flowers when I was feeling down.
Happy Monday to everyone. I hope something today makes you smile.
