I had the best surprise this morning -- I went out to water my garden, and as I went around the corner of the house, I saw that two tall sunflowers were there to greet me. The lovely orange-red flowers bloomed overnight and made me smile. I planted them after visiting the VanGogh Museum last year and can see why they were such a source of inspiration.
Seven (yes, seven) years ago Wednesday I had surgery for breast cancer. I imagined I could still be here to welcome the seven year mark, but some things seem too much to wish and hope for.
So, I am here, welcoming sunflowers in my yard. I can only imagine what lies around the next corner. I am grateful and open to any source of inspiration.
