You know that saying, "practice random acts of kindness?" Well, this is my version for beauty in life. The other day we went blueberry picking and afterwards we were just on our way home and there on the side of the road was the most beautiful sunflower garden. My Mom immediately pulled the car over and started to turn around. me: "Where are you going?" mom: " Back to that garden, you know you want to take pictures of that!" I just laughed. She knows me well. Believe it or not, it was the local water payment office. It's this tiny little office with the most beautiful garden of sunflowers up the walkway and zinnias and flowers around the entire fence. What a nice place to pay the water payment! It actually inspired me to plant my own sunflower garden. I usually have some, but this year I was focusing on my vegetable garden. As soon as I have sunflowers, I'll show them to you as well. See something beautiful? I hope you'll be inspired to stop and enjoy it and remember to practice "random acts of beauty". It makes you smile.
