when ever I feel like giving a friend in need
a little something to cheer them up
I make these little small bouquets
they are usually filled with the odds and ends...
the little scraps from the garden
that seem to go un-noticed by most
but they tend to be the prettiest
and the most thoughtful little blooms
sometimes dirty and tattered
but always perfect to me
a single rose
mixed in with succulent blossoms
a green branch
from a fuzzy shrub
placed in a juice glass...
can become a wonderful little gift
flowers lacking all the petals
single drooping limbs
with crusty brown edges
the orphans and misfits of the flower garden
can become the
happiest of bouquets
so don't forget to look for the stragglers
and the lonely little ones
most beautiful and courageous things
that are often dismissed as not perfect enough
can be our most inspiring
and are usually found in the most unlikely places...
like right beside us
this I know is true
have a beautiful weekend
make it your own!
