Every day we go past things. There are so many things we just filter out in life. We are busy thinking about the things that are more important to us. The little problems that are oh so important. You know what will I fix for dinner? I can’t believe that person just said that. Or wow, I really do want a new pair of shoes.
Today was one of those days when I finally woke up and noticed something. I was driving home from work, and as usual I was thinking about all sorts of things. I decided that I didn’t want to make lunch. It just seemed like a hassle. So I decided to visit the local Dairy Queen that was on my way home. When I parked the car to go inside the Dairy Queen, I looked in front of me and saw a field full of color. I mean it was like a rainbow full of colors. Now I knew there was an empty lot there, but I never looked at it before. The lot has been empty long enough that wildflowers had taken over. There were flowers in every color. It was beautiful! It strange how something I never noticed before was actually so beautiful. I picked some of the flowers, and as I was bringing them in the house a huge bumble bee appeared. Apparantly, he thought the flowers were wonderful too.
Here are a few shots of some of the flowers I picked. Let me know if you’ve had an experience with something you never noticed before.
