The Blessing of Blooming Where you're Planted

Bloom where you're planted. I've heard that many times and I do agree with it. But I have to say when I look at this photo, I wouldn't mind sitting in one of those chairs.  Just saying ...

Back to reality.  I feel like I'm blooming right here in the desert of Phoenix.  Last week was very hot but today it was in the low 80's and windy.  Figures that I wore a skirt of all days. Between the wind blowing and the kids lifting it up, I'm glad I wore shorts underneath. I didn't want a Michelle Obama moment!

I took these photos while I was driving home from an afternoon spent with friends at their Scottsdale home. Many of my friends from back east didn't realize that we have so much green in Arizona.

The children in our Pre-K 3 class go to Art Class every Friday. This past week we had one of my favorite substitutes; Mrs. Thomson.  Every time any of the preschool children see her they always recognize her as Miss Debbie's friend.  Well, I do consider her my friend but she's been subbing at our school before I even worked there. So we get a chuckle out of this!

The children loved using their creativity to make necklaces using the outer border of paper plates.

And speaking of blooming ...my very own little garden is blooming. My roses are looking pretty good.  I love tinkering in the mornings as I trim and fertilize. I'm putting together an herb garden too with fresh basil, rosemary and parsley.  I can't wait to go on this year's Arcadia Edible Garden Tour Tour to get more ideas and tips. I already purchased my ticket.

So yes I will bloom where I'm planted; even in the desert of Phoenix. And when you start to look around there are always many blessings to be seen.

#1068 The beauty of the desert
#1069  Flowers in bloom
#1070  Spending time with amazing co-workers each day
#1071  An afternoon of catching up with a special group of friends
#1072  Knowing that I am prayed for by these friends
#1073  Writing a blog post that was difficult for me and receiving such thoughtful feedback and comments (in case you missed it you can read it here)
#1074 Brokenness is not a bad word after all
#1075 I get to teach Culinary Camp this summer to 7-11 year old children
#1076 Learning more and more about gardening

I'm linking up with Ann of A Holy Experience for Multitudes on Mondays as I count my every day blessings.



May I encourage you to look around at your life and begin to notice those every day blessings. I can guarantee it will change your perspective.

Blessings and love,

This NFL Flag for Washington Redskins is constructed of polyester, measures 3x5 feet, and has two metal grommets for attaching to our 6' aluminum flagpoles or any of our tailgate pole systems. The perimeter of our NFL Flag for Washington Redskins is double stitched and the team logos are screen printed into the flag so they won't peel. Because of its large size, these flags are great to hang on any wall in your game room, sports room, garage.
