Welcome to this blog. This weekly blog aims to provide encouraging thoughts and quotes to get you through the week. You may be asking, “why choose sunflowers?”
Sunflowers have a significant meaning to me. After the loss of my son, I spent years in a deep depression. I found very little positive in the world. My friend gave me a large picture of a sunflower. I hung it up on my wall, and I would smile when I would pass by it. The flower was pretty to look at, had pretty colors (yellow and green), and helped change my frown to a smile. I began adding sunflowers to my décor. As my mood began to lighten, my dark apartment began to lighten up; I started opening the blinds and turning on the lights. My heart started to feel lighter also; I found myself smiling and interacting with others. That picture gave me hope when I was feeling hopeless.
Please join me weekly for an inspiring, encouraging, positive message.
