A friend shared with me this week how sweet it was when her two young sons brought in a bouquet of dandelions for her. She was, of course, blessed more by their smiles and love than the flowers.
The friend who was chatting with us shared how important it was to gush and exclaim how wonderful those yellow flowers were and invite them to pick all the bouquets they could while outside. "A sure fire way to reduce the number of dandelions next year," she said with a ear-to-ear grin on her face.
I'm not sure I have enough kids, enough vases, or enough time in the day for all of our dandelions to be picked. EVER. But I thought I'd pass the idea on for someone else to try!
