Curve Balls And Flowers

It's been a tough day. Actually, it's been a really tough week for me, and I'm not so sure if things will get better anytime soon. Life has thrown me several curve balls, but I'm still here - standing.

To cheer myself up, I'm posting some photos I really like. I took these photos at the Hershey Gardens. I hope they can cheer someone who's having a tough time too. After all, I find my smile whenever I see blooming flowers.
There will be another inning, another game, another chance, and ‘how’ you handle the curve balls is really up to you. You can lose your confidence, your spirit, your love of the game or, you can take your stance at home plate, swing like you have never swung before and know you have a chance at hitting that ball far out into the outfield or the stands.  (Kimberley Cohen)

Happiness held is a seed; happiness shared is the flower.

Find the seed at the bottom of your heart and bring forth the flower.

The flower that follows the sun does so even in cloudy days.

Happy Wednesday to all.
