The best flowers are in your face, aren't they!? : )
I don't recall ever having breathed in the scent of apple blossoms as deeply and honestly as I had this week. I LOVE how they smell. They are so sweet and soft. My children were already late for school that morning, and after I rushed them out the door, I brought them to a complete hault in the front yard. "Go smell those apple flowers! Stick your face right in there." And they did. And they stood motionless for so long just smelling that scent. And I watched their little shoulders relax and their posture soften and they just stood there and breathed it all in. The world stopped for that moment.
I love teaching my children to stop for things like that.
|Today, these are the most important things.|
I sincerely hope you stop to love up some blooms today.
