Missing the obvious :)

Do you ever feel like you're oblivious to the things around you, or is it just me?
I'd hardly even noticed the flowers in our walkway a week or so ago,
but my youngest daughter was paying attention.
She took the camera out there and snapped a photo. 
Unretouched, btw :) Isn't it beautiful?  

Last month my oldest son and some friends went to see a new singer perform.
They'd discovered her on YouTube. Her name is Jayme Dee,
and she has an absolutely beautiful voice. If you haven't heard of her yet, you will :) 

So last week, when an old friend that I'd reconnected with on FB mentioned her too, 
I was a bit surprised....until I suddenly realized that Jayme Dee
was her daughter!!
We'd messaged back and forth and she'd mentioned that her daughter sang.
I'd looked at my friend's FB photos of her family,
and I'd viewed Jayme Dee's video with my son.
Somehow I hadn't put two and two together though.

I may be oblivious at times, but I've definitely got my kids convinced 
that I have connections to everyone :)
(Btw, her daddy was my college youth pastor, 
and her sweet mama has an equally beautiful voice).



  1. Yes, your flowers are beautiful! I'll check out Jayme; small world, right?


  2. Gorgeous flowers...I miss flowers like that in the winter! And I'll listen to her...

  3. Amazing colors in that flower! Life gets busier it seems and we need a reminder to take time to stop and 'smell the roses' as it were!
