Step 1: Paint the flower pot.

Gifts from the Sea

Have you read Gifts from the Sea by Anne Morrow Lindbergh? It’s one of my favorite books to read and reread. If you aren’t familiar with Anne’s story, she was the wife of the famous pilot Charles Lindbergh, and she suffered a terrible loss when her baby was kidnapped. I really admire Anne, her grace and strength, and the way she was able to carry on and find so much good in the world.
