Lens-Artists #83: Future

For this week’s challenge Ann-Christine has asked us to illustrate the Future.

To plant a garden is to believe in tomorrow ~ Audrey Hepburn

A flower bud’s future is to become a flower.

The future of a caterpillar is to become a butterfly.

While I don’t know what my future will bring, I can enjoy watching my garden grow. The seeds I plant in March become summer flowers.

Many thanks to Ann-Christine for this weeks Lens-Artists Photo Challenge – Future

 

Tomorrow is a Mystery

Five years ago I had just gotten over a very serious illness and did not know what the future would be for me. One of my best friends gave me this plaque in the above photo that now hangs in my kitchen to remind me that every day is a gift.

Every time I see a sunrise I know that I have been given the precious gift of another day on planet earth.
