"I think I can, I think I can"
This lovely blossom surprised me yesterday. The day lilly had been blooming its heart out, and I was certain we'd seen all of its blossoms a few weeks ago. Imagine my surprise when I looked out the window to be greeted by this gorgeous orange flower yesterday morning. I was reminded not to underestimate things - myself, others and, most importantly, the life force around us.
One of my favorite childhood stories was The Little Engine That Could. I liked it (and still do) because it was the little engine that accomplished the difficult task. As a child, I was thrilled by this idea. As an adult, I still am. To find my own strength and to never underestimate myself. And to extend that belief to others. Truly, a lesson for life.
