Reigniting the flame …

Today is the first day of participating in Susannah Conway’s August Break – one photo a day each day in August.

Today starts with beauty.  Yesterday, I had the crappiest morning. I was deep in the darkness of hopelessness and just wanted to give up.  But, I reached out. And, two friends were there to catch me; to talk and listen and remind me of the light and beauty.

Later in the day, I saw this wonderful sunflower.  Next to an industrial parking lot.  Lifting its face to the sun.

Thanks to those two friends, I was able to see the beauty of this sunflower. I am grateful every day for the loved ones in my life who reignite my inner flame when it feels like there is nothing left but ashes.
