Flower . . . Power



Did you ever notice how strong flowers are?
Able to withstand the sun without getting burned,
the whipping winds without blowing away, and torrential rains without drowning.
And no matter what is going on in the world,
they always find a way to look on the bright side of things.

And . . .

they are so strong that they can lift my spirits when they've fallen,
and they can take my frown and turn it upside down.



Yep, flowers just have a way of speaking without words, and touching my heart.
And have you noticed how impossible it is to NOT be happy around them?

Hope your Monday, your week, is filled with them!!
Love, Kim
XO

**Oh and P.S..... I'm so excited, I submitted one of my flower photos from last week to a contest
over at Love That Shot and they chose it for the cover of their on-line magazine - check it out here! : ) **

Hi Kim . . . love your work as always. Though I am currently on a very limited income, this weekend I took $20 from my budget to the garden centre to get me "a little flower". I consider it a mental and emotional health necessity.
Congrats on the cover shot, just gorgeous!
