I was spending way too much time researching to give you this furry little creation it’s fansy proper name. To put a couple of Latin words that I could not even pronounce . When I realized the beauty is not in the name. I didn’t pause in my path because I saw some fansy name and had to stop and say hello. I stopped because of it’s beauty and uniqueness, just as we should for the people we encounter.
“Who can estimate the elevating and refining influences and moral value of flowers with all their graceful forms, bewitching shades and combinations of colors and exquisitely varied perfumes? These silent influences are unconsciously felt even by those who do not appreciate them consciously and thus with better and still better fruits, nuts, grains, vegetables and flowers, will the earth be transformed, man’s thought refined, and turned from the base destructive forces into nobler production. One which will lift him to high planes of action toward the happy day when the Creator of all this beautiful work is more acknowledged and loved, and where man shall offer his brother man, not bullets and bayonets, but richer grains, better fruit and fairer flowers from the bounty of this earth.”
– Father George Schoener (1864 -1941)
Stop and say hello to something or somebody that catches your eye.
