I took this photo a year ago across the county road from my house. It is just a common weed in Mississippi where I grew up and lived most of my life before moving here. I remember thinking when I took this photo that most people never see the beauty of these little flowers. I try in my everday life to stop and look at the ordinary and the everday and see the beauty within both things and people. So imagine my surprise when Lissa chose this picture for my blog header. I really like it a lot because it seems to visually show my philosophy of life in a nutshell that each day is a gift and even the smallest things the world sees as insignificant like a roadside weed can be beautifully Perfectly Imperfect.Oddly enough if I had been asked to chose a flower to represent me as a person it would be a wildflower and not the refined rose.
Thanks so much to Lissa for the new look and her kind heart.
This is part of My Sacred Life

I thought this quote really went with the theme of todays post and the picture.
