A couple weeks ago...

We got to go see my brother play tennis! I miss tennis so much, so this was a major treat for me! Not to mention, Joseph loves all things sports aaaand it was a beautiful day out! All around, a great time.

One of the greatest little moments while there was my sweet boy who decided to give me "flowers". Such a sweetheart! He gave me many petals rather than a whole flower but I thought the littleness of each petal and the effort it took to gather and give me each one was even sweeter. My mama heart was filled. 
The sweet moment made me think of this quote from St. Therese de Lisieux:
“I understood that every flower created by Him is beautiful, that the brilliance of the rose and the whiteness of the lily do not lessen the perfume of the violet or the sweet simplicity of the daisy. I understood that if all the lowly flowers wished to be roses, nature would no longer be enameled with lovely hues. And so it is in the world of souls, Our lord's living garden.” ― Thérèse de Lisieux

Here I am with my boys.

And here is Joseph on Daddy's shoulders. He'd live up there if we let him.

Post-match debrief from the awesome tennis player.
Hoping there will be another chance to watch some more matches! I miss playing so for now I will enjoy it vicariously through my brother.
