On a Monday I can still remember the fun I had over the weekend, Wednesday is the middle of the work week, on Thursday I start getting hopeful and on a Friday I can taste the weekend. But what about a Tuesday? It’s so…. just there. Weekend memories are too far away and the upcoming weekend might as well be a year away.
What we need is a bit of colourful inspiration to get us going on a Tuesday, don’t you think? A pretty picture, beautiful scenery or colourful imagery. Yup, that’ll liven up Tuesdays and turn it into a terrific day!
From now on I will go through my photos and Pinterest likes every Tuesday and find us a pretty picture to add colour and joy to the day.
When my sister in law and her children visited us in April, Cayla chose these pink and white snapdragons for our garden. They were very boring, plain green plants plugs when we saw them in the garden centre, but Cayla looked at the card that came with the tray of plants and chose them anyway. She had a vision of how it would look in our garden when they eventually would bloom. She could easily have chosen plants that were already flowering, but she chose these for us, despite the fact that they would only bloom once she was back in South Africa.
Cayla’s choice was excellent. I love these snapdragons! I’m sure they’re blooming even better because Cayla helped me plant them. All her childlike innocence and optimism went into the ground with the little plant plugs.
There’s a little to be learned from this 8 year old girl.
Cayla’s Snapdragon Philosophy Of Life:
- be optimistic,
- trust nature,
- don’t always choose instant gratification, and
- put the happiness of others above your own.
Wishing you all a Terrific Tuesday.
Beautiful flowers, beautiful philosophy. That child will go far 😀
They truly are beautiful. They were one of your great-grandmother’s favourites. Hope you enjoy their beauty for a long time.
