Thistle: Symmetry and Beauty

Be your own kind of beautiful.
        ----- Anonymous
The thistle is a regal prince. Where some see unwanted weeds, I see a crowning glory of beauty, grace and symmetry.
          — Henry Ward Beecher 
A weed is but an unloved flower.
        ― Ella Wheeler Wilcox.
The pedigree of honey does not concern the bee; A purple crown, to him is aristocracy.
       ------Emily Dickenson
The winds of change seem to toss us about aimlessly, until we realize, like the hand that commands thistledown, we have always been and will always be beautifully guided.
      -----G. Hill
You shall be a crown of beauty in the hand of the Lord, and a royal diadem in the hand of your God.
—–Isaiah 62:3


Gentle hearts wing their way back to you.  Life that touches life is simply beautiful. 
       -----G. Hill


Hidden Beauty: Wondering Why We Didn’t See It There Before

From Beauty and the Beast

There's something sweet
And almost kind
But he was mean, coarse and unrefined
But now he's dear, and so unsure
I wonder why I didn't see it there before

    It took my husbands death to sit and watch a blade of grass grow


    1. Janice, Your comment truly touched my heart. I feel as though I am sitting with you in the grass. I read that we should grieve for the living, not the departed.
