In the midst of Catastrophe…

I typically oppose to battling a private battle publicly. But when I am inspired by something, anything, I feel the need to share.

My family is going through a battle that is trying, but strengthening all in one. This situation has literally caused my family and I to put our lives on hold and cater to the sensitivity that is the present. Even in the midst of our troubles, I noticed the beauty in nature (which made me smile). I literally stopped and took the time to feel and admire these hot pink beauties.

The flower. It’s beauty. It’s simplicity. It’s ability to teach.

They teach us that a small life well lived is far better than a long life badly-lived.

They teach us to scatter mirth and beauty wherever we go.

Arrangement of their petals and leaflets in a systematic way teaches us to lead a systematic and disciplined life.

Their smiles even in thorny surroundings bring home to us the art of living

We should all do more of the things we love. And share these things, to encourage others to do the same. Please keep my family in your prayers.

XO,
