There seasonal display room was still set up with Easter Lillies and I l.o.v.e the smell of lillies. I just sat on the floor and inhaled for a good 10 minutes!!
It is funny how smells, at least for me, can change my attitude. It's hard to explain, but certain smells (lillies, baking bread, rain, campfire smoke, fall) just fill me.
That's how it was with the lillies at the conservatory. God's whisper in the midst of chaos to stop and by thankful for all He has blessed me with.

Troy is home now, got back late last night, and I am so happy to have him home. It was a long 8 days for us. The kids and I had fun, lots of adventures and lots of meltdowns and tantrums, but overall it was good.
A few friends pitched in to help, I even got out of putting the kids to bed Monday night because a friend took pity on me and told me she was coming over so I could get out for a bit. I was so incredibly thankful for that!
Back into *real* routine now and that's not a bad thing!
