A Year of Smiles – Day 115

sunflower-face-stickerReason to SMILE #115: SUNFLOWERS

There was a time in my childhood when I was afraid of sunflowers.  That seems like an irrational fear, doesn’t it?  For a little girl, though, seeing those huge plants with gigantic flowering heads staring down at me as if they could suddenly bend down and squash me flat at any moment created a genuine fear.  (I may have had a slightly overactive imagination as a child!)

Ask me, now, what my favorite flower is and my answer will always be sunflowers.  It’s funny how our tastes change as we grow older and our childhood fears subside.  What once scared the bejesus out of me now brings me happiness and SMILES.  Hmm… There just might be a good devotional in there somewhere!

Forget the roses by the dozens.  Give me a bouquet of sunflowers any day and I’ll be one SMILIN’ lady!
