Blooming Where You're Planted

"Jon, slow down!" Our van crawled by as I stared in amazed wonder. 

To the right, there is a picture of a tarp house, constructed on the sidewalk. I have seen at least five family members there. Another tarp house, not so uncommon.

But look to the left. It's hard to see, but those bright yellow containers, are filled with houseplants and a cute little puppy dog is tied up and playing amidst the garden this woman has created on her stretch of street.

As I studied the scene, I realized that in the midst of the ugly, this space has been made lovely.

OH, I just love this Amy. Just a simple reminder of how women are women no matter where they live, and how she's overcoming things in a very small way. Thanks for sharing!
