My back yard was a former garden, full of flowers, vegetables, and fruit trees. One of the only plants I have of that former paradise is an old fashion rose bush. I like to think I honor the former owner by keeping it alive and enjoying its blossoms every year. Today is a day for me to practice just being in the now. My mind is anxious for things I can't control. I read a blog post yesterday about the ability to just "BE". That is my goal for the day to just be. Looking at something as simple yet as lovely as a flower helps center me and reminds me of the importance of the now. Time is so fleeting. Today just BE.
