Every year on this day we remember the floods that engulfed our little home and started us on this house project journey.
Every year on this day something special happens to remind me that there is always a silver lining, that good can come from adversity.
It's only a small sign, but this spider lily bloomed for the first time since I planted them as bulbs. It was a lovely and pleasant surprise because it's very late in the season and I wasn't expecting it to bloom at all until September.
We're still on our project journey and these little things bring a smile to my face.
It's been five years and signs of the flood are gone, but never forgotten.
