Joy In The Morning

Friday, May 10, 2013

I have a tendency toward depression. When I stay busy, I can will it away, but lately some personal circumstances have raised their ugly heads and had me a bit down.
I thought my dark purple iris was through blooming, iris is my favorite flower.
When I looked out the window this morning, low on a stalk was a purple iris blooming in all its glory.
That was a sign for me that all is well. There is Joy in the Morning!

    Way to go. We have so many iris bulbs planted around the yard. So many colors and fragrances. What an absolute delight when they bloom. Today I noticed the yellow water irises in the pond opened up . . . yes Joy for sure!

    I've never been diagnosed with depression, but I often feel depressed because of health issues stemming from my cancer and the chemo I am going through. I know I feel better when I can keep busy. My hard time is in the evening, when it's time to go to sleep; that's when I have a hard time turning my thoughts off.

Love your page background of the tulips!

    I truly love your blog because, like you, I suffer from depression and many times, what gets me out of that mood, are the "small" and simple things in life: a small flower; my cat purring; a rain shower; a warm shower; a smile from a stranger while I take the bus.

The title of your blog got my attention too and I like it. Thanks for sharing from the heart. emoticon

Love, Chelsea emoticon
