Great Joy and Delight In Flowers
By Robert "Bob" Barta
The intent of this post is to encourage the art of admiring the beauty of flowers as a way to disengage your mind from the stresses of your day.
Take a neighborhood walk and look for their beauty in natural settings or well kept flower beds or commercial displays in your local stores. In addition, natural decorative grasses or trees in blossom provide opportunities to capture and store nature’s beauty on your iPhone or Android or computer hard drive. The sensation of instant joy and delight is always there whenever you need or want it.
As a release from the stress of shopping, pause briefly and gaze at the beauty of flowers on display. I’m confident that you will forget your tired feet and just let your mind enjoy beauty that you may have been passing by because of the debilitating habit of hurry, rush, rush!
The job of flowers is to show off their beauty. Your privilege is to appreciate and be thankful for them fulfilling their purpose.

P.S. Occasionally extend your gazing delight with a purchase of flowers. In addition, a bouquet of flowers is a wonderful way to show appreciation, thankfulness and caring for others you love and respect. You’ll surely add joy and delight to their day. (see previous story)
