a heart like a wildflower ♥

cabbage white butterflies ...
those who have followed my blog over the years {thank you xo}
will remember our beautiful black labs
Bentley & Ernest ♥♥

when they passed, we would be followed by a cabbage white butterfly
on our woodland walks ...
they became a little "nudge" to us ... letting us know they were alright
and still walking the woods with us in spirit...
finding 2 cabbage whites is always a special spiritual sign xo
blooms and butterflies
in love
fields of coneflowers
bee haven
and the serenity of water
such beauty fluttering around us
wildflower "nests"
daucus carota
queen anne's lace
wild carrot
bishop's lace
but I prefer birds nest :-D
joy and freedom along the path
kinhin
{walking meditation}
Kiss the Earth
Walk and touch peace every moment
Walk and touch happiness every moment
Each step brings a fresh breeze
Each step makes a flower bloom
Kiss the Earth with your feet
Bring the Earth your love and happiness
The Earth will be safe
when we feel safe in ourselves
~Thich Nhat Hanh~
wherever
you stand
be * the * soul
of that place
~Rumi~
I hope you are blessed
with a heart
like a wildflower.
Strong enough
to rise again
after being trampled upon,
tough enough
to weather the worst
of Summer storms,
and able to grow
and flourish
even in the most
broken places
