It has been a few weeks since I last posted the picture of my favorite tree on our front lawn. As I have written in the past, this tree is very special to me.
Its leaves have been growing, and its tiny flowers have started to bloom. The flowers have a colorful combination of pink and white. I feel blessed that we are surrounded by such beauty. Each time I observe nature, I am reminded how talented Mother Nature really is. She speaks to us through her works of art. She quietly paints the earth with her colors for all of to enjoy.
One of my favorite past times is to sit on the front porch, and just stare at the tree. It brings me a sense of inner peace, and relaxation. This past weekend, while the boys were playing outside, I had plenty of time to sit out doors. While the boys played tennis and soccer on the street, I had plenty of time to day dream. As a mother with three children, life can get busy and chaotic. I take every chance I can get to relax, and sit down.
As the tree continues to bloom, it reminds me that the school year is coming to an end. Lazy summer days are just around the corner. Trips to the park, and pic nic lunches will soon become a reality. Simple things such as hanging around the front porch, and talking about sweet nothings with my boys, makes me realize just how blessed and lucky I really am."/>
