Why a dandelion? I can remember my childhood in Indiana seeing the cute little yellow flowers in the springtime! However, to the person taking care of the lawn - they are a nuisance poking their little yellow weed-heads right out into the beautiful green grass. My book is one of inspiration, motivation, education, action – I didn’t think my message of encouraging one to live a dream life as a nuisance? But then…
My favorite time was when the yellow flower would mysteriously turn into a white puff ball! As children, we would pick it, make a wish and blow… those little white seed parachutes would float over the lawn just looking for a place to land and grow more little yellow heads in the beautiful grass. When I woke up that morning and “just knew” that the dandelion was the perfect cover, I realized that as children we have so many wishes and dreams for our future – promises really. Sometimes life simply gets in the way. But the wish seeds that land in good, fertile ground and that are nurtured and encouraged to grow are the dreams that eventually become our lives. My prayer is that the reader will be encouraged to pursue their dreams and be given guidance towards achieving a happy life of their dreams… Perfect!
When you stop and really look at the dandelion’s little yellow flower, you will discover that it is really quite beautiful. With it's many petals and it's happy yellow color it is really very cheery. And then the thought struck me. There are many things that come into our lives that at first we consider a nuisance. But if we really stop to think about them, often they can become a thing of beauty--teaching lessons and helping us to grow and mature in our lives. I love the cover of my book! It helps to remind me to stop and see the beauty in all situations, to ask myself what lesson I am to be learning, and how does this situation help me to grow into a better person. What are your dreams, your promises for the future? I wish all the best for all of you, my friends. as well.
