Over the weekend we were hoping to get some of that disinfecting UV light, but Saturday it rained all day. My brand new tulips enjoyed it though.
Never fear, because Warrior Sun showed up on Sunday to battle and conquer the plague (using positive, affirmative words can’t hurt).My tulips had a wonderful weekend, getting plenty to drink on Saturday and sunlight on Sunday.I’ve never been a gardener of any sort—don’ t even have plants in the house because I’ve failed them too often. It’s exciting to see my first attempt at planting bulbs in the fall have turned into a vibrant display this spring.
We decided to join in with the flowers to get some UV disinfectant and fresh air, by going on a journey to a park we visited last spring.It was a lovely day, listening to the rush of the water flowing beneath the bridge while the sunlight transformed the water into magical glitters.As I basked in the peacefulness of the moment, something didn’t feel quite right.Could it be that spiny, broken tree was really a mega-spider? Did I feel the need to escape?
When tears began to fill my eyes, I knew it wasn’t fear, but rather, melancholy. Why did I feel half-empty? Something was missing.Deep down, I knew exactly what was missing. The last time we visited this creek park, our guy was still with us.Each new season and each new journey we take without him is a challenge in this first year. But, this is what we sign up for when we adopt these precious gifts from God.
In the meantime, we keep moving forward, soaking in that UV disinfectant.Did the sunlight disinfectant show up in your neighborhood over the weekend?
