Last week I bought this glorious sunshiny bouquet of sunflowers to grace my home when my dear friends Linda and Mike came for a visit.
This morning, the sunflowers were droopy, dropping petals and looking kind of sad.
Kind of like me after a sleep-less night of worrying about some peeps I love.
While my coffee was brewing, I went to my art stuff stored in the garage,
and brought out my Microfleur Flower Press.
I gathered the some of the petals off of the wilting sunflowers and arranged them on the press for drying.
About 40 seconds in the microwave and I had these beautiful bright yellow petals preserved.
Sunshine captured for later use in a collage or art piece of some kind.
Maybe a mandala with some other leafy bits from the past?
All the pieces carefully, lovingly, preserved in the pages of some old books ready to be given another chance to be part of the beauty ?
The sleepless night and the process of preserving these sunshine petals this morning made me revisit some lessons I am learning
for what seems like the billionth time.
Worrying doesn’t change the outcome.
Focusing on the negative only brings more negative to you.
And of course,
Love is the answer to every question.
Going to focus on how love applies today.
Starting with myself !
Happy Thursday, Beautiful Ones !
