When I am in a solemn mood, nothing brings me together like flowers. I read the book, " The Language of Flowers" a few months back, and it helped me understand the connection we have with flowers. I have always felt the most peace when I am surrounded by nature. Maybe because to me, God and nature are one, and because my parents' house, where I grew up, is surrounded by the woods and acres of land. Nature reminds me I am so little in a world so big. And I have so much to be thankful for. In college I read "Nature" by Ralph Waldo Emerson, and I took this quote with me:
"The happiest man is he who learns from nature the lesson of worship"
