I looked out into the backyard yesterday, and what did I see? A little clump of freesias blooming in the middle of an empty flowerbed.
I planted those bulbs ages ago, even before having kids. Somehow I always forget that they are there until some day in the spring, when I happen to look out at that part of the yard and find a beautiful surprise.
Now they’re in the living room. I can see them as I sit here at my laptop; when I get closer, I can smell them. It makes me happy to think that a little bit of digging on a fall afternoon can bring such lovely, lasting rewards.
What in your life is bringing you joy today?
