A few years ago on our way back home from Sale in Victoria, we came across a sunflower field which took my breath away. I’d never seen one!
It reminded me of the Calendar Girls Movie…
‘I don’t think there’s anything on this planet that more trumpets life that the sunflower. For me that’s because of the reason behind its name. Not because it looks like the sun but because it follows the sun. During the course of the day, the head tracks the journey of the sun across the sky. A satellite dish for sunshine. Wherever light is, no matter how weak, these flowers will find it. And that’s such an admirable thing. And such a lesson in life.’
I would have to agree with this quote. I wonder how much sunnier our lives would be if we looked for the light, no matter how weak!
