Yesterday, I was teaching kids at the Riveredge Nature Center about ephemeral wildflowers. They are delicate, fragile, and…ephemeral as well.
While the blooms of ephemeral wildflowers are a fleeting splash of joy and color on the landscape, the roots are native, hardy, and deep. They belong, they return, and they endure in the grand scheme. I believe Love is like that. That kind of Love returns to me each Mother’s Day.
When a good foundation supports that which is delicate, its beauty transcends time and circumstance and endures. Let us all love each other with tenderness and care, for we are all delicate creatures yearning to grow strong.
Thank you, Ann-Christine, for inviting us to ponder the Delicate nature of Life.
A lovely interpretation, warm and insightful. Thank you for a very human and beautiful post on Delicate, Priscilla!
Thank you, Ann-Christine. “Only connect” – as my mother and E.M. Forster would say.
These made me smile. 🙂
What a beautiful interpretation of the challenge Priscilla. I agree wholeheartedly
