Lilies of the Valley
The sweet smell of Lily of the Valley fills the air as I sit on my porch and begin to write this post,. Each year our lilies grow stronger and more abundant. The new additions appear to stand alone in the patch, but just beneath the surface lies a network of roots connecting all of the delicate flowers. The Lilies are much like my amazing extended family as we are growing in number each year, and we go about our daily lives independent of one another. But beneath the surface we are connected by incredibly strong roots anchored in love.
