Flowers Outside My Window

Barbie-pink flowers bloomed from a tree in my backyard, one whose branches reach up to my bathroom window.

These flowers felt like a gift, a lovely bouquet. It very much looked like the tree was extending its branches towards my window, offering me the lovely little buds with the pink petals πŸ’–

Every day, I made sure to take a moment (just a few seconds) to gaze at the flowers. In the afternoon, the sun would shine into my window, and the flowers would cast my bathroom in a soft pink glow.

Then the hail came. It was a night full of thunder and rain. The hail pelted our roof for half and hour. And the next day…

Well, a lot of the petals are now gone, which makes me glad I took the time to stop for a moment and enjoy all those beautiful little pink flowers. The tree is still hanging on to some, and I plan to enjoy those.

Just for a few moments every day.

I’m not sure when they’ll be gone again.

Take care and God bless,

  1. I am the same way as you! I have a bunch of different cherry trees and they all bud and flower at different times; however, I make sure to enjoy the flowers while they are in bloom. Amazing that God cares even more for us than the flowers that are here today and gone tomorrow.

  2. Those are some absolutely stunning flowers – I can see why you were so enchanted by them!!! πŸŒΈπŸ’– And, you certainly prove a great point that we should enjoy things while we have them. You just never know when it’ll be gone! 😊
