I photographed this beautiful bloom with my favorite 135 mm lens, smack dab in the middle of my garden overrun with weeds. It was a small reminder to be grateful for the small things, the minutia, even in the midst of chaos.
So glad to hear your mom seems to be doing well.
I stand convicted that I, too, bargain shop and don’t support small buisnesses like I should. I’m proud of you for standing up and making your case. I promise to order from you next time I need school stuff!
When buying flowers the other day I thought of you. The “small” guy was more expensive than the “big” guy…and my dilema was the “small” has been rude to me on the my last two visits (and on the last on I purchased almost $200 worth of plants). So I went to the “big” guy. I spent $150 and two different women chatted with me for no apparent reason. I whole-heartedly believe in doing business with the local guys, but what if the “other guy” has better service? What do I do then?
What eyes that little man has. He’s saying something…not sure what it is, but he’s telling us so much with those eyes!
