Time to join in with the Changing Seasons challenge (here)
This first photo is a flower picture that sums up my month: filled with flowers — also busy, alive, and packed full.
When I say “alive” – I really mean that.
Not just personally alive with a heartbeat
But this month I felt a lot of humanity connection.
I guess I have a lot of months like this, but I helped a person in the street who was hit by a car (that was life-changing and I hope to share more about it).
Also, I had some folks pass away at the end of last year and so that underpinned the appreciation. Then the heart gets tugged with aging parents and knowing they will not be around forever.
Well they could outlive us, because we just never know what a day will bring forth, but in January I MADE TIME for family… My FIL is at a new retirement center (in our area) and did you know that some retirement centers have fresh flowers delivered every week (donated). It is such a beautiful treat – so life-giving.
So yeah, in January I made time to stop and
photograph smell the flowers:
January also had some birthdays to note:
Shanna Frazee (readers might remember the awesome young lady I met in 1995 — posts are here and here).
January also had birthdays for Laura W., Chrissy C., and R from Delancey Place (here).
If you had a January birthday – I wish you a belated happy birthday.
Oh – and January was also Sade’s sixtieth birthday – so let’s end with some Sade: Soldier of Love
and Feel No Pain
Go here for #TheChangingSeasons
