i bought myself flowers maybe a week or so ago. to my surprise and delight, they are still alive and well! i just wanted to take the time to be thankful for them and explain why they're important to me. sometimes, i just want to see and be around something beautiful. i love the existence of flowers - how soft and silky the petals are to the touch. their light fragrance. the words they speak of calmness and beauty in their sweet silence. the richness of their colors. thank God for flowers.
