Despite…

Despite the fact that my mother just died and my life is full of conflicting feelings…

…I finished knitting a pair of socks…

…the anthurium is still blooming…

…the fuchsia’s colors are radiant…

…the beans broke through the surface and began to grow…

…the marigolds are full of color…

…the tomatoes got bigger…

…the beans started up the pole…

…more tomatoes began to get bigger…

…the heirloom tomato thrived…

…the Kahuku corn came up…

…the Stargazer Lilies got tall and bloomed in the sun…

…the pikake got ready to release its amazing fragrance…

…the hibiscus got covered with blooms…

…the flowers grew bright and reflected the glory of their Creator…

…who let me know that I am never alone.
