On the walk to school, we notice the tiniest weeping cherry. Amid the oldest and the tallest, the brightest and the best, this little tree–so humble and no bigger than a chair–makes her contribution.
In the shadow of the tall oaks on either side of her, she seems so very small.
Stand tall, Little Tree! The whole world might not see you, and you don’t stand nearly as tall as the rest, but for this one walk to school, this one street, and this one patch of grass, you bring joy.
I want to be the kind of woman who brings pleasure and joy, even if I’m not the best or the most important. Maybe my assignment from God is to bloom small for just one street.
Thank you for reading Live with Flair! It’s the 2 year anniversary today!
Happy anniversary! Love your sweet sentiment here.
Heather – I check with you everyday from North Carolina. I enjoy your quick little wisdoms. You are a constant reminder of God's love and a bright spot in my day!
Happy Anniversary! You have added joy to my life many days with your posts. 🙂
Happy Blogoversary! I so enjoy your observations even when I don't comment. This weeping cherry tree gives me hope; that what I do in my little part of the world has meaning, brings joy and serves God. Blog on!
Remiinds me of the story of the little boy with the starfish: It makes a difference to this one.
I check several blogs daily but always save yours for last. It is the one that stays with me. Thanks!
Happy anniversary, Heather! Thanks for the sweet joy you add to my life daily. Here in my little mountain town in Northern California, only the crocus have popped up so far. Nice to get a taste of spring with your lovely photos.
whatever your assignment from God, you carry it out with such grace, thank you every day
Congratulations on two years of blogging. Thank you as well.
Thank you, Tammie!
Thank you, Elainelaurin! What a compliment!
Thank you, Judy! I would think NC would have more blooms that Central PA, but maybe your little mountain town is higher up !
Thank you, Melinda!
Yes! The Starfish! I had forgotten that story. Yes! What we do matters, even if just for one person.
Yes! Your little part matters so much! And I just love those sweet dogs.
Thank you, Nis!
So glad to hear that, Clara!
Thank you, Kim!
Hi Heather; Thank you for your commitment to your blog – I appreciate your
heart, your patch in the quilt, your star in the sky, your brush stroke on the
painting of life, for all to see.
I also thank you for choosing to teach others how to do the same.
Blessings on your continued writings. Mark
Your last two sentences fill my heart with joy. Yes, the small blooms are as worthy as the show-stoppers. Your blog is a daily source of inspiration. Congrats on two years.
