Perfect Moment Monday: Mostly sunny

in Perfect Moment

Perfect Moment Monday is about noticing a perfect moment rather than creating one. Perfect moments can be momentous or ordinary or somewhere in between.

Once a week we engage in mindfulness about something that is right with our world. Everyone is welcome to join. Details on how to participate are at the bottom of this post, complete with bloggy bling.

Please visit the links of the participants at the bottom.

Here’s a perfect moment from my week. I hope you’ll share yours, too.


It’s back. The rogue sunflower that planted itself last year and inspired these adoption-related thoughts.

It’s so tall it looks me in the eye. Its many blossoms wave me goodbye when I pull out of my driveway. It greets me sunnily when I return. It brings happiness to my yard, my life.


To participate in Perfect Moment Monday:

  1. Between Sunday night and Tuesday night, write up your own Perfect Moment in a blog post, on Twitter, on Facebook, or simply leave a comment below.
  2. Grab the URL of your Perfect Moment.
  3. Use LinkyTools below to enter your blog’s name and the URL of your Perfect Moment
  4. Visit the Perfect Moments of others (from the links below), and let the writers know you were there.

Once you make a Perfect Moment post , you may place this button on your blog.

Beautiful, strong flower. I love its spirit.
“Brings happiness to your yard.” … For some reason I started thinking of milkshakes and all the boys. =)

Sunflowers! I love them. Like Kir, these and daisies make me joyful. No matter what. So glad there are some rogues in your yard standing tall and wishing you well.

We have a couple of rogue sunflowers too. They seem to stubborn, happy and strong.

I loved your previous post about your garden and your dedication at the end to Tessa and Reed.

I love the bright blue sky against the beautiful yellow sunflower! It is so appealing. Beautiful picture and even better b/c they are volunteer sunflowers. I have some like that in the backyard and I love how they just came up out of the compost. Amazing. isn’t it?!?!
