keeping it simple

I know that plans and reality may be two different things, but I think my demands on life are minimal.

Last Sunday, while still feeling more green than usual, I bought myself some flowers…some beautiful flowers…because I can.

It’s nice when you receive something special like a simple bouquet of flowers…even if they are a fistful of dandelions from the backyard…especially if they are a fistful of dandelions from the backyard. It’s amazing how something so simple can make you feel special and remind you that today someone was thinking about you during the busyness of their day. It’s as if you have been enveloped by a warm, bear hug or been warmed by the clasp of hands…fingers laced.

Such a simple thing.

Such a needed thing.

A thing that often is overlooked, ignored and lost in the clutter and bustle of our day to day plugged-in lives.

Lately the simple is what I crave the most but when I try to articulate it it becomes all the more complicated. So, while at Safeway, doing my weekly shopping so the indigent tribe-peoples under the Big Top won’t starve, I bought myself some beautiful flowers.

I picked out, for myself, a simple bouquet of white tulips…because they were simple…because they were beautiful…because I can.

I’m glad that I did.

This week’s Focus 52 prompt is minimal.

  1. You’re so right! I grab myself flowers from the grocer once in awhile, just because.
    And oh what I wouldn’t give for the days I received dandelion bouquets!!!

    Thanks for linking up this week 🙂
