Marcus and I took this picture yesterday. This is the one flower blooming at our new building. It is a single thistle. The rest of the yard is mud.  This thistle seems to have thrived in the flood waters; the deep tap root was steady in the storm.  It soaked in the water and is stronger and more beautiful. I love that there is just one on the side lot. One is all we need to remember the thousand more that can bloom from its seeds. I love you all. That's enough of a sign for me.
