"Life presents many opportunities,
Many blessings in disguise.
But without the vision to see them
And the strength to bring them to fruition,
They pass as usefully as a flower that dies
Before it has a chance to bloom."
(an excerpt from the book,'THE Hidden View', by
Donald S.Neviaser)

Today was a great day. I received so much positive reinforcement from those around me. I was food shopping and ran into some old friends, one had no clue it was me..and the other kept smiling and shaking her head..in disbelief...It felt wonderful..
I went to the movies with my husband and daughter they got the usual, salted buttered popcorn and soda... I brought a fruit cup and a piece of chicken. At one point my daughter leaned over and said...you must miss the popcorn, I really feel bad that you can't eat it. I just smiled at her and looked around me.
Not only was I sitting in a movie seat that last summer was so uncomfortable because I was "stuffed into it", I was crossing my legs!!! It is these little things that inspire me...the simple things in life that bring so much pleasure.
This flower is blooming!
