But, I'll leave you with this cautionary note. To remind me of my mortality and/or impending demise, I received in the mail this card...
...To remind me of dreams unfulfilled. Go for it! Tomorrow you could be old!
This sunflower popped up by our front walkway. Out of nowhere! A sunflower! That area doesn't even get watered and a sunflower grew to full flower (with lots of flower buds that keep flowering one after another).
I think it may have come from the birdfeeder; there are sunflower seeds in the birdfeed mix. But he had to plant himself and endure a hostile soil environment, just to make me happy.
I think it's a good reminder that opportunities can arise anywhere. And we need to be present enough to take advantage of them!
