When we were in Colorado two weeks ago, one of the things I noticed I kept doing was breathing deeply to take in the fresh, clear mountain air. I live in a humid part of the country (although not as humid as the south or east!) and it is also an agricultural area. Those two things combined make for air that is hard to take in most of the time. It's thick, and it's full of "stuff" from pesticides and pollen and weeds and so on. When I got to the Rocky Mountains, I felt like I was in air heaven.
I breathed in the "fragrance" of the air. It was so refreshing and made me feel alive again. Sometimes my husband and I feel deadened to the area where we live. We are "transplants" -- here for jobs, and not because we chose the place. But God chose it for us for now, and we have loved raising our family here and have loved our good friends.
I can't breathe that Rocky Mountain air now. But I remember it and can take in the fragrance of the memory!
These flowers, by Rubber Stamp Tapestry, are from Rose Trio, the set special for June. You can see how I made this card and what supplies I used HERE. This week all orders over $30 get a FREE sparrow stamp - while supplies last!
Thank you to those praying for my mom and dad. Yesterday my mom had a total hip replacement and today my dad had some minor surgery as well. It has been a crazy couple of days. My son left yesterday to fly back to North Carolina (he won't be back here until Christmas!), and got stuck overnight in Memphis due to weather related issues. He finally did get home today around noon! Right after our rehearsal for "My Fair Lady" last night, our weather here turned crazy. They were predicting 80 mile per hour winds and up to 4 inch hail - which, thankfully, passed us by! But it was a crazy rain night. The streets were flooded and we now (overnight!) have hundreds of mushrooms in our backyard! Too bad they aren't the eating kind!
I hope you have a blissfully fragrant day!
