Life can be sweet some days, and quickly sour as fast as Brenna’s expression after seeing a suitcase come out of the guest room closet. Lately it’s been that way for me. One minute I’m completely happy, dancing around to Pandora’s “Sunday Funday Brunch,” as I bop around the house ironing clothes, digging for “treasure” in Brenna’s magical box, or vacuuming up the endless tree schmutz that has somehow once again made it all over the house thanks to B.O.B. Bob’s shoes and his unwillingness to wipe his feet at the front door. And then, on other days, I find myself suddenly hit with the sourness. On those days, I muck through it, sucking it up, attempting to discover anything that will take my mind off the doldrums. Lately that something has been flowers. From the variety of ones blooming in our yard, to the insane amount of potted ones that I have spent a small fortune purchasing to make our deck and front porch a cheery place to stop and sit a bit, to the ones that certain lovely persons have brought to my doorstep. I love them all. They make me happy. Almost as happy as seeing Brenna when she’s napping in the sunshine, blissfully quiet, with a content rare non-sour-puss look on her face. It doesn’t happen often, but when it does, those are the truly sweet moments that get me through the sour times.
