Sometimes the littlest things are so comforting, total God things. ❤
In my last post for our precious Lindsey’s birthday, I shared that I was planting a little wildflower packet in a pot that was all part of a sweet gift from our church I had been saving for a special occasion.
Since I hadn’t felt well that day, I actually ended up planting them at my little planting station on my porch in the middle of the night – my neighbors are totally used to this sort of thing and don’t even question it anymore I’m sure. bahaha. 🙂 – and then they actually spent the next two days away from direct sunlight because my husband was working on a fantastic project for me that required moving their shelf temporarily.
All that to say, I wasn’t sure how well they would do.
Well, my heart is smiling so big that Lindsey’s wildflowers are taking off after just a few days. . .
Also, on Tuesday, in my Facebook memories, some wonderful pictures of a trip to New Orleans eleven years ago – the first big trip my husband and I took together – with Linds and our dear friend Jason and several other friends as well – came up. Oh my heart. ❤
Wildflowers also mean someone else who is just a big part of my heart, my precious friend Jen across the ocean. Tom Petty’s “Wildflowers” is absolutely my Jen song – it carries a meaning for us tied closely to our sweet friend Jamie as well – so seeing them makes me think of her too and smile.
I’m so grateful for my people, here and on the other side – and for the small, beautiful God things that make them feel close. ❤
Be well, everybody. Take care of yourselves and each other.
Grace and Blessings.
I love that Drew and Ellie did a Kitchen Cover of this song. It’s just perfect. ❤
