As I was walking down our front steps this morning, I really did pause and take in the beauty of all colors of spring. We have light pink cherry blossom trees across the street, vibrant and muted purple phlox just around the corner, another raspberry colored beauty just down the way. There are pops of yellow and green everywhere. The beauty still my souls. In particular, I noticed our tree directly in front as it had shed most of its blossoms on our driveway leaving the illusion of snow. I remarked in my head, "I must show our children when they wake up." I was away running a few errands only to return to the following.
The white snow flowers.
I rounded the corner to our home and was met with this. Oh Johnny, he knows my heart. The language to my heart is through words and time. I left our home this morning admiring beauty and I returned with sentiments that stayed with me throughout the day. I will always remember this sweetness. What was sweet to me is that the kids told me later they saw him outside. Dominic said, "I just thought he was cleaning up the driveway."
