Yesterday, before this artic air moved across our region, I discovered this one Black-eyed Susan in the garden. Uncovered when cleaning up the last of the leaves and cutting back the perennial beds, this blossom was discovered, all by itself. Covered by a light snow this morning and drooped over from the wind and cold, this seems like the perfect flower image for today. It’s the language of flowers I shall rely on again.
In the language of flowers, the Black-eyed Susan represents encouragement. It is also an extremely resilient plant. On this day 6 of 26 days of kindness, today's acts of kindness are to honor Dylan Hockley.
Dylan was a “beautiful butterfly” who loved the color purple, trampolines and plain spaghetti with garlic bread. So on this Sunday, I hope you will visit the event and FB page later to share an act of kindness to honor Dylan. Every little bit of encouragement helps to heal the wounds of Newtown, CT.
As Franklin D. Roosevelt once said, “When you come to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on.” So one last flower from the archives in honor of Dylan; a Purple Balloon Flower to give encouragement or a lift to someone in need today.
