Making you Smile

My program manager choosing to quit on me. Assignments that the third grader needs help with. The younger one going through one of those difficult phases. The marathon coming up on Sunday. Itchy throat, runny nose. Sleepless nights. Early morning conference calls. In five words- Life Spiralling Out of Control.

“Out with my plants”, I thought. “I need to simplify my life.” Maybe I could stop watering them, and they would just go. But you can’t let plants die, can you? Grumbling, I reached out with a watering can. And saw this.

Nature has a way of making you smile.

Beautiful! My plants tend to die on me. Unlike the cats, they do not meow if they want/need something, and unlike the BF they cannot take care of themselves. (I feel ashamed.)

Natasha - What a lovely, lovely 'photo of a lovely flower! Yes, that's enough to restore anyone's equanimity and more...
