Today is August 13, 2016.

Who am I today?

I Am…

  • Kind
  • Honest
  • Open
  • Worthy
  • A Wife
  • A Sister
  • A Daughter
  • An Auntie
  • A Godmother
  • A Writer
  • A Teacher
  • A Student
  • A Friend
  • A Dreamer
  • A Traveler
  • One of a Kind

I am a lover of blue, sunrises, butterflies, summer, the sea.

I help when I can and find a lesson in every day.

I value honesty and kindness.

I am excited about opportunity, concerned about my health, enthusiastic about living.

I need laughter, waves, and words.

I give compassion, respect, encouragement, and support.

I fear lost time and Kingda Ka (the rollercoaster).

I would like to see a world filled with humanity instead of acrimony.

I live to live and dream to make my life come alive.

I believe in filling my soul with joy and my heart with love.

 

Stay tuned the final installment, Part 7: I Go!, tomorrow.

Day 18 of 31 Days of Summer Lovin’ 2016: Grow

20160718 Blog Photo New Fonts

I took this photo yesterday of my tiger lilies using my iPhone.

The funny thing is, I never planted tiger lilies in my yard.

The flowers grew all by themselves in 2013. At that time, the single plant was about as tall as my shoulder.

In 2014, I had three tiger lily plants that grew, and last year, about 5 came up.

I’m now up to 8 plants scattered by nature in my flower beds.

Today’s photo depicts the original 2013 plant. It has grown to be 6 feet tall! It’s as tall as my husband and has more buds on it than ever.

I never had more than 2 flowers open at once. Today there are 6 open on the original plant, and the first bloom that opened dropped it’s first petal onto the ground.

I am grateful that these beauties decided to call my yard home.
