The Familiar and the New

It's been a slow Tuesday. The kids are back in school after the Memorial Day holiday, and I've been catching up on work and home projects that I neglected over the weekend. I don't have anything exciting to share. But earlier today, when I was doing errands, I parked my car in the old Pottery Shack lot on Glenneyre Street and noticed a plant covered with these spectacular little flowers--that I've never seen before--just inches from my bumper.

dear God I thank you
for familiar things and those
seen for the first time
