Several years ago, my mother was given these iris by an elderly neighbor. Mom planted some of them in her yard and passed the rest along to me.
Blooming only once a year, and for such a short time, these stately flowers are a lesson to us of how fleeting life’s wonderful moments can be … and how precious those times are.
Today, they’re a reminder of my late mother–of her love and willingness to share.
May God bless you on this Easter Sunday, and in the days to come. May you find many moments of fulfillment and joy as you pursue your dreams.
