I am loving the flowers this spring. I just walk in circles around the yard looking at them like a smitten teen.
A hail storm was heading to town on Tuesday evening. Afraid that my iris display would soon be floral confetti I ran through rain drops snapping photos of them. I felt like a kid again. Then while the tornado sirens kept me in the basement I entertained myself with the BeFunky photo editor. Wednesday morning revealed that the irises weathered the storm.
And in other iris news...The Lions Club is providing glasses for one of my students. I spent over a year trying to find a source for financial help to get this little guy glasses. Finally, the Lions Club said yes, but he has been on a waiting list for the past five months because need is so great.
Having watched this student squint and strain to see the screen at the front of the classroom for such a long time before I found a solution, I became keenly aware of how a decent pair of glasses can be life changing. I personally have a ridiculous array of spectacles to choose between (thankful). This experience at work inspired me to whittle down my number of eye glasses by donating my excess. Lenscrafters stores everywhere accept used eyeglasses and work with One Vision to distribute the eye wear around the globe. Ah, feels good.
Three thankfuls to go...lets count the irises I most love to look into: two browns (well four if we are counting eyes, two if we are counting people), greens and blues.
