“All in all it’s been a tough week.”
For those who accuse President Obama of being elitist, I think you can agree that his statement last night is right on.
This morning, I felt almost guilty for waking up with joy in my heart when I thought of heading out into the sunshine to the Farmer’s Market.
And then I spotted the lilacs.
Lilac is the state flower of NH, and a couple of summers ago I realized, to my delight, that they grow here too. I stick my face into whatever lilac bush I can find, because the smell reminds me of home.
Today, after I bought these, at least 5 people asked to smell them. 3 of them were total strangers.
I felt like my heart was healing just a little each time. I wished I could bottle the feeling and send it to Texas, Boston, China and all the places where there is just too much sadness.
Happy Saturday, y’all. Be kind.
