Welcome new season! and new beginnings. I thought this flower from my aunt and uncle's garden was a perfect depiction of fall. Today my son's first sunflower finally bloomed. He watched and waited and tickled his buddies every day anticipating their entrance into his life. His patience and nurturing were rewarded with its vibrant beauty and so today we celebrate. It is also recognition of his recovery as he embraced God and nature through art and gardening, and sunflowers were huge in his life (no pun intended.) Today he celebrates four months of sobriety.

Congratulations my sweet boy! Smile today just as your flower does for you. Be happy. xo
