What do I know?
But this: it is heaven itself to take what is given,
to see what is plain; what the sun lights up willingly;
for example -- I think this
as I reach down, not to pick but merely to touch --
the suitability of the field for the daisies, and the
daisies for the field. ~ Mary Oliver #nofilterjustnature
"I love you, I love you not, I love you!l"
I remembered chanting this line while plucking a hapless Daisy naked when I was young, hoping for a boy that would make me happy and make me fall in love with him. I'll tell you a funny story when I met my husband. I actually met him on Match.com twelve years ago. We chatted back and forth on email for several weeks. He kept bugging me to meet him, but I was very busy during that time because I was running a catering business. I had events in the evenings and weekends, but finally we did meet! I had one Sunday afternoon available, but I had to finished up a large order of cookies that needed to packaged and shipped to an event in the East Coast. He offered to help and I always take free offers of help 😜Let's say this man could not tie a simple bow to save his life 😂😂😂 it always came out crooked and uneven. To this day he only wears loafers where he slips it on! I really wrote him off but he persisted, and I finally realized what a gem he was 😁 He is my unexpected find in life.
I will always associated a Daisy with my husband, because even though it looks simple, it's complex and beautiful in its simplicity. .

that feeds off the sun
and flows with the wind
i would only stop you
from being as bright and as big
as i know you could be
delicate flower that wilts in the rain
i am not you, but i understand your pain
let me be the one to show you
people seem kinder than what they really are
I'm sorry you learnt this the hard way,
i am sorry i might be the reason your petals are falling off
Leave me alone in the rain to subside,
I have lived under this cloud my entire life
And though i know this is not a way to live
It's the only other way i know how to exist.
I'm warning you now that birthday photos are coming and there's a lot of them. Kadence had such a great time getting her first mani and pedi and celebrating with her friends. Thank you to everyone who came and who wished her a happy birthday 💜💓#kadenceveraturns3
