Summer blooms, they know the days are getting shorter,they know their days are numbered.  Their beauty becomes more astounding every day.  These beauties greeted me at my front door today, trimmed in a ray of sunshine.  It had been a difficult
afternoon, full of sadness......I looked for beauty around every curve as I drove home, I had to know that it was still here......I knew in my heart it was.

As I got out of my car, the sun's rays peaked through the massive dogwood in our front yard, beauty blazed at my doorsteps.  I am grateful tonight, grateful that beauty is all around us.....we just have to open our eyes.
