a little flower of hope

Last weekend, I got to take the three and a half hour trip north to go home for the weekend. Yesterday was my dad's birthday, so I was up there to celebrate and we had family portraits done for our church directory.

It rained all day Saturday. But during a brief break in the rain, I snuck outside to take pictures. I found this flower in the backyard, by the driveway, and it was so bright and vivid, I couldn't not take a picture.

Despite the fact that it's been cold and it rained all weekend, that flower marched on and was still gorgeous and refused to take a beat down.

Somedays, I feel beaten down, but I saw that flower and it gave me a little hope. To keep marching on and stay strong.
