Yesterday on my walk I was tired from the uphill climb to get to the grocery store and then on my way back I was burdened down with the two heavy bags I was carrying.
I stopped to rest on a bench and happened to notice a solitary Buttercup blooming. The little waxy bright yellow flower brought a smile to my face as it looked so cheerful. Even though it was not very big, nor in a prominent place, it still bloomed and in doing so made a difference in my life that day.
Remember—You Matter—wherever you are, bloom where you are planted, and you will make someone’s day better.
