Getting to Know a Daffodil

When we take the time to really get to know someone up close and personal

We find there are so many beautiful things about them that we never knew--

They might even have little idiosyncrasies or interesting curly-ques to their personality
we've never noticed before--

They may be shy, cover their face and blush profusely,

Or they may be the dramatic type and love lots of attention--

But any way we look at it,
It's a cinch they will add beauty and light to our lives
If we look hard enough.

Yes, you know I do think I know you, and quite well. Are you aware that the name "daffodil" means new life, new beginnings? My life changed when I met you three years ago. I have always loved these sweet and lovely flowers. They just seem to show up so suddenly in the yard, sometimes on the darkest and coldest day you look out the window and there they are. Seemingly, appearing overnight! Daffodils are a sign of God's love for us, in my opinion. He brings them in cold dark weather right before He is about to unleash a glorious spring...a little hint of what's to come. They are a joy and so are you!
