JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 89 :: long lost friends

2 Apr
{flowers}

I’ve been thinking a lot about my friends lately — and how lucky I am to be connected to so many amazing people in this world. What a true gift, in so many ways that words cannot describe. Joy is one word, that can only sum it up.

I’ve also been thinking about the times that I have felt so very far away from my “people” — and in those times when I cannot reach a friend, it’s always been the flowers that give me support.

The flowers pop up, bloom, and remind me that there is still beauty in this world.  Sometimes I think the flowers are long lost friends because of the joy they bring to me.

And, those flowers have taught me so many valuable lessons.

  • To bloom no matter who is watching.
  • To remember there will always be another spring
  • To celebrate all the various colors and combinations this world has to offer
  • And to recognize beauty in every stage of life

Those flowers are just so full of wisdom, love, and joy, aren’t they?
Thank you, my friends.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 84 :: watching flowers bloom

27 Mar
{joyufl}

Spring is starting to peek through the rain, and along with it are also the flowers. I love seeing the flowers begin to bloom. They bring with them so much joy!

Which brings me to tonight’s thoughts on joy…

Joy, truly is, watching the flowers bloom.
Bloom, flowers, bloom! The world needs your joy.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 55 :: blooming

25 Feb
{defrost}

The snow has melted. And my little flowers outside my office window seemed to have survived the storm. They are brighter green today than they have been all week. It has me thinking of spring, and blossoms and the power of blooming. 

But I know that the petals are really just the expression of all the work that happens before the flower blooms. The struggle in the soil, the surviving of the winter storms, the seeds that were planted so long ago. Blooming always starts on the inside, deep beneath the surface.

I have a feeling that is where JOY comes from too.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 48 :: snow day

18 Feb
{joy}

We woke up to snow this morning. A slight dusting across the land leaving everything white capped and wintery. Even the flowers that are poking up out the ground outside my window.

They have delicate little yellow bulbs waiting to open. I worried about them today. But the truth is, Mother Nature knows best.

And those little delicate flowers probably know exactly what to do to survive a February snow and when to do it. Much like I think we all do. We all know what to do deep down in our heart of hearts. There is always that truth.  The heart truth.   

So I will keep watching those flowers out my window. And hope the sun will come out tomorrow to warm them back up.

And… In my heart, I already know it will.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 178 :: surprise 

19 Jul

Dinner.

Tonight Justin rushed me out the door. I thought it was pretty rude actually since I was trying to finish up a phone call. But he insisted. So I hung up abruptly and hopped into the car next to him.

Then he handed me a Bonzai Tree – the tree of life, and surprised me with our three-week wedding anniversary celebration dinner. It was all planned because I won’t be here on our first month anniversary next week. How sweet. How thoughtful. How kind.

We dined next to the docks and the bay at Anthony’s on the wharf. But all I could see were the flowers. Brilliant, beautiful, bold flowers waving at us in the wind as we sipped and ate our four-course meal.

It all reminded me that everything is in living color when you take the time to appreciate what it is you have. For me, it was the kindness of a meal, one that commemorates our three weeks together as officially married.

But, what it really showed me was this: the kindness of every little detail.
And I should know by now that this guy likes surprises!

More tomorrow….
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 157 4-letter friday

9 Jun

Flow.  

As in flower.

I passed this flower stand on my way home today. Situated at the corner of the path through the park it caught my eye. Just one vase of red flowers left.

And a note.

I love the idea of a flower stand and the idea of trust.
Trusting that people will pay for their flowers and pay it forward so that there may be more flowers.

Keeping it in the flow.
How kind.

More tomorrow….
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 138 kindness is…

21 May

Blooming. 

And this:

And also this: watching beauty bloom right in front of your eyes.

The older I am the more appreciation I have for the flowers and the blooming that occurs right before my very eyes. It’s like magic. Or Mother Nature’s kindness pouring out as I walk on by. The tricky part is noticing.

Blooming kindness.

More tomorrow….
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 92 :: more laughter flowering

5 Apr

Springy. 

As I was driving listening to the radio today, absorbing too much talk radio and politics and blabbering on… I realized I need more laughter.

And then I found this:

I think we could all use more laughter. And, maybe as the flowers pop their heads up out of the ground I will remember to stop and smell the laughter.

Wouldn’t that be kind?

More tomorrow….
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 91 :: the flowers are coming

4 Apr

Spring. 

It’s my favorite time of year. Flower blooming season. And… the tulips are here! (At least at the grocery store).

I think this might be Mother Nature’s kindest and prettiest act of intentional kindness.

More tomorrow….
Lovemore,
Jamie
