In the Eye of the Beholder

As a parent, this moment is a right of passage.  Your child spots the most beautiful flower from afar and quickly begins dashing around the yard to gather you a bouquet. You notice immediately that she is gathering dandelions and chuckle to yourself about how sweet it is she could confuse a weed with real beauty.


But then, before you know it, there's an entire fistful just waiting for a vase.

Every stem is lovingly arranged-

And inspected -

And rearranged.

Until you can finally step back and enjoy the little bit of perfection you've created. Because there's no confusing that.
