Embrace each moment, each person….

The world is rich with diversity in nature and it’s people. That’s what makes it so wondrous. Today the brilliance and awesomeness of each of us feels dimmed because of multiple, hatred attacks to too many. May we grieve and know that it is OUR love and faith that will make each day most special; each moment a miracle unto itself. May we be strengthened by each sweet moment today. May we embrace each other and radiate the love that makes life wonderful. ………….Copyright 2018 Pamela Breitberg

A native of everywhere…

A common, which means favorite, summer bloom in Chicago is the Coreopsis. Today I learned it’s also Florida’s state wildflower! Plus it’s a native to Missious as well; it certainly gets around! That means coreopsis is my new favorite wildflower because it connects with each of my worlds. Copyright 2018 Pamela Breitberg
