Today I am thinking about my friend, Diane, who is a very special flower in my life. This one is for you, my friend. May you never feel that you are a burden and hold tight to the belief that you are a beautiful gift.
Filling Petals with Sunshine
By Vicki Flaherty
Everyone you touch – in whatever way – is blessed.
You grace others’ lives in ways we may not see,
Like God’s little secret, the meaning in our lives
Is sometimes hidden below the surface –
Or maybe high above and out of reach, for now.
Each time you ask for help,
Each time you let someone give,
Each time you open yourself to another,
You exercise your power to create meaning.
Each time you lean into your vulnerability,
Your purpose unfolds,
Like a rosebud hungry to fill its petals with sunshine.
