Just for a moment, a day, a week, a month...I will be thankful
Sometimes beauty is to be admired from afar. It is there for everyone to love.
If I wanted to get to these flowers up close, I would have to risk my life crossing the road they are on the other side of.
At first, this frustrated me because the drivers on that road seemed to think it was a racetrack.
Then I thought…. How amazing that I can just be a quiet observer.
No one can access these where they are. So they remain for everyone who passes by to notice.
Some will notice immediately and be thankful. Some will ignore them and pass them on by. Some will be so wrapped up in their hurry to a destination, they won’t see them at all.
But I for a moment, a day, a week, a month have had the pleasure of watching them grow and retreat, grow and retreat. Just before sunset, they are glorious and full.
I have no idea how much longer they will be there. But while they are I remain thankful.
Thankful for moments I live so many never get to see. Thankful for the things I see that so many miss. Thankful to be alive and still growing ❤️🙏🏻🌻
