A Stroll in the Garden

Boldness doesn’t mean rude, obnoxious, loud, or disrespectful. Being bold is being firm, sure, confident, fearless, daring, strong, resilient, and not easily intimidated. It means you’re willing to go where you’ve never been, willing to try what you’ve never tried, and willing to trust what you’ve never trusted. Boldness is quiet, not noisy. -Mike Yaconelli

A Stroll in the Garden

The first two photos were taken at Wonderwood Park…one of my favorite places to go when visiting the kids.  It is a very easy walk from their home.
