She stoops, intent on finding just the right treasure to share with me. Her tiny frame all but disappears against the green grass.
She is my oldest, my first born, my precious child.
She’s my snuggle-bug, my sweet girl, the one who insists on living life right next to me.
Even in her youth, she sees beauty in the everyday and determines to share it.
Her offering today? A bunch of tiny purple blooms.
They’re not Pinterest perfect and this bouquet won’t ever show up in a Southern Living magazine, but it’s what she has to offer and she does it with such enthusiasm.
Her purpose is to make me feel special, to show love with what she has, today, in the moment.
What if we did that as adults?
What if we looked around, embraced the gifts we were given and shared our lives, just where we are?
What if we took the opportunities presented and made the best of them? What if we did it now with what we have instead of waiting for the illusive perfect moment or situation?
Today’s challenge? Live life like a child.
Do what you can, with what you have, where you are. In other words, bloom where you’re planted.
How will you embrace the challenge today? Share in the comments and let’s encourage one another!
