One of my oldest daughter’s teachers from elementary school took the time to encourage her and our family through this post on Facebook. The comments that continued were equally a blessing and an unexpected joy!
“When the heart overflows, it comes out the eyes. God is good like that; He doesn’t want our chests to bust!”
“The soul would have no rainbow if the eyes had no tears!”
We had just been uplifted at a bridal shower for her upcoming wedding in May.
Bountiful blessings through laughter, food, and gifts were bestowed on her. Later that day we were equally blessed to visit my Aunt Polly who reminded us that she was a great listener, because we were great talkers!
Grandma and Papa gave Victoria her wedding day jewelry–necklace and earrings from Papa to his wife for their 50th Wedding Anniversary many years ago.
It’s the every day, seemingly small things, in connecting with those around us that make the difference. They all add up to a beautiful and meaningful life filled with joy. The grand moments–the miracles–are wonderfully amazing; however, one can get lost in the miracle of the everyday dandelion or daisy.
We are so grateful to those who take the time, the energy, and the love to support and connect with us. We love you! You are a daisy to us!
One can get just as much exultation in losing oneself in a little thing as in a big thing. It is nice to think how one can be recklessly lost in a daisy. Anne Morrow Lindbergh
