One Beautiful Thing ~ eight

She has a hug for everyone.

She can identify almost every flower and bird species known to man.

She has an adventurous spirit who embraces change, always anticipating the next turn in the road.

She has creative hands... whether she is is building a whimsical birdhouse, applying paint to canvas, coaxing the flowers and veggies to grow in her garden, or whipping up a culinary masterpiece in the kitchen.

She makes a mean pineapple dessert.

She is an expert at not being a procrastinator when there is a job to be done...why didn't I inherit this gene?

She finds the most perfect gifts for people... always as unique as the person she is giving it to. She gives with such thoughtfulness and care.

She is so good at giving a compliment, but not so good at accepting one.

She hates hates hates lima beans!

She is loved by each and every duck, squirrel, woodpecker, deer, owl and bunny who enters her yard in need of a snack.

She never fails to show the people closest to her how much she loves them... she loves without reservation.

She is an old soul.

And she is the most Beautiful Thing.

I love you mom... so much.
Happy Mother's Day.
