Sweet Shot: the flowerpot


It's hard to believe that little pot and single part of a six pack of flowers could last this long.

It has been sitting on my windowsill for over 2 YEARS.

Christian gave it to me on our last Mother's Day together.

A big thank you to their teachers for doing this little project in Sunday School. Only God knew how much of a treasure it would be to me!

Kind of like a lot of things in life. You don't really know the lasting impact or how much that little thing you did way back when would matter over time.


Linking up my Sweet Shot at Darcy's today.

So simple yet so beautiful. It is sometimes the little things that people do for us that make the biggest impact on our lives, even a simple as a "hello" or a smile. Thanks for sharing! :-)

So beautiful! I've never had one of those projects last. ever.

I'm struck by how permeating a person's presence is that even when they are gone, there are signs of their life everywhere! And then I'm challenged...what kind of permeating presence do I leave behind??

Love you, friend!

I totally agree with Angel's comment.

It's hard to cry with food in your mouth!!!

Marsha, God knows. He knew. He is so amazing and so merciful and kind. I love that you have this living reminder of your Little Man.

I love you.

That is just awesome! I have plants in my house from when my 24 and 19yos were born, and from my mother's funeral. They are really special, and obviously very low-maintenance since I do NOT have a green thumb.
