"Sometimes we need beauty as much as food to remain truly alive. Flowers reallyWow! What a beautiful statement. As I read it, it truly touched me. That's when I decided I needed that kind of food. Especially, as my soul has been aching with the memories of 2 years ago when Wyatt took his last breath. I decided I needed my own Tulips. I was determined to have my own little splurge.
are food for my soul."
I at times can be too practical. I've gone past the flower section at the store and longed to buy some flowers but never have bought them because it costs money and it's not practical... they will just die. Well after reading her post I decided I was going to splurge and I was going to buy my own tulips. I was going to let these flowers feed my soul. I saw these pink ones and grabbed them. To my surprise they were 50% off so I only had to splurge $2.50. I have to say that $2.50 splurge has been well worth it. These flowers have brought such joy and happiness in my home and life this week. I've LOVED taking pictures of them and simply just enjoying their beauty. It has brought a certain spirit into my life as well. They truly have fed my soul. I remember as a child when spring was approaching seeing the tulips coming through the snow and getting that excited feeling inside that yes winter was about over and spring was to come...my favorite time of the year next to summer. These tulips reminded me of those feelings. They have been a wonderful addition to my week this week. I love flowers and am going to make a more conscious effort in bringing them into my life so that they can continue to feed my soul. Thank you Jennifer for the inspiration and for all the other inspired things you have brought into my life.
Here are just a few of the pictures I took this week....I'm sure I will be taking more until they are gone.
