I just wanted to share this experience so everyone knows that small things can make you happy.
One of my hobbies is gardening. I have a swan planter that I bought a New Guinea impatiens for. It looked so pretty. Well I watered it (I tend to overwater) and then we had torrential rains. When I checked the swan it was soaked and floating in water. I drained all the water and stuffed paper towels in the dirt to absorb more water. Most of the plant looked droopy and limp. I cut off the bad parts and there were a few stems and leaves that seemed to not droop. Well, you should see how beautiful that plant is now, so full and sturdy and full of pink blossoms. It somehow came back to life and is even better. Sometimes we need to stop and see the miracles that happen and appreciate the good things in our lives however small. I was feeling so down and I believe this is one of those times that God carried me.
