So I was feeling a little down today, money has been real tight lately, and M' Lady has been working out of town alot. I started feeling a little sad, as she did, about not really being able for us spend time together on her day, and for myself, not really being able to send her something special for her B'day today.
As I was walking about the mountain this morning, a bit down, I started to notice how I was surrounded by tall trees, thick foliage, and wildflowers. I came across some daisies and mountain laurel in bloom and I thought to myself, well, nature is as good or better than any florist so why not.
And ya know what, I found I was able to at least send her a little flower arrangement after all, by phone.
She seemed to enjoy it, so it soothed my soul at least a little, and I hope it did hers as well.
I reckon that sometimes helping others, helps us help ourselves sometimes.
