Today, we walked through The Gardens at Thanksgiving Point in the cloudy drizzle of the day.
David and I are always amazed at the beauty that a grateful heart can create. I am in awe that there is inspiration all around, even on a wet, grey day.
In The Secret Garden, I ran into a friend from my previous neighborhood. Julie has gone through a lot since her last pregnancy (to say the least) and has changed a lot in appearance. She has maybe a few weeks left on this earth. (Recent story here.) She wanted a photo of her by the beautiful tulips. I am so glad I had my camera with me.
I promised Julie I'd email the photos. As I was walking out of The Secret Garden, I needed an excuse to hide my wet eyes behind the camera, so I stopped at the door and took a photo of the knob.
Baby Dhis was intrigued by the vibrant colors of the land, but as we approached her bedtime, she was "less enthralled" and "more ticked off."
I confess that even when she cries, I smile. I enjoy having her in my life. I am grateful for my very loving husband. I am comforted by a very loving God who showers me with tulips every year.
