Mother Nature Blessed My Socks Off Today!

If there is one thing I know about living in Washington, Mother Nature is always busy (hence the saying, 'if you don't like the weather, wait 15 minutes and it will change.') keeping me in a state of surprise and awe! For example, during the first recess of the day, the weather was beautiful and sunny. During lunch recess it was cold and blustery. When living near the coast in Washington state, the weather is what it is.

The girls are at rehearsal for the play they will be in later this week and normally the youngest jumps out of the van when we are safely parked in the driveway and gets the mail. It has been her job since we moved here, she just likes bringing in the mail out of the box and any packages that may have been left and rain or snow, she doesn't miss a day.

Today however, with rehearsal, I decided to pick up the mail and this is what I found waiting for me as I came down the driveway, these beautiful purple flowers and I am not sure what they are, but each year that we have lived in this home, a different flower has popped up in the area near our mailbox.
This one is set apart from all the others and I just love the colors and the fact that something woke these beautiful flowers up from their slumber and the dressed up just to bless me today!

We have not planted these or any other flower seeds, these have come up on their own!

It is simply Gods way of letting me know that things are going to be alright!

I hope you enjoy these pictures as much as I did the flowers and I hope they spring up your step as you continue into your day.

?At the top they kind of look like pansies. At the bottom sort of like tulips. They are not crocus are they? Lovely. I just woke up from a lovely nap that wasn't supposed to be so long, so we both experienced something nice!

God is good like that!

The crocus are of my very favorite of colors.

I just know God has special blessings for grandmothers who raise a second family of grands.
