"Come on Gracie, let's take a walk around the house before I leave for work."
"Let me grab my phone and take a picture of these pretty wildflowers popping up in the flower bed. Now be still.... Quit pulling on the leash. A few months and this bed will be covered in an array of beautiful colors."
"Hold it. Just one more picture... These bushes beside the house are starting to look gorgeous. I love this time of year."
I got mail. Mom said it's my sickie-pressie and it will make me feel better. I'm smiling already. Gracie.
