This birdcage was full of flowers last summer. When fall came and the plants died, I put it in the basement. I saw it early spring and thought I should put some new plants in it, but it was too soon to put it outside and then I forgot about it. Last week, I saw it... it had a pale green stem and very pale orange flowers. I had no idea anything was alive in there! I watered it and put it in indirect sun and now its colors have brightened and it is growing like mad! This plant survived 7 months of neglect!
So many things to ponder... *seasons of beauty can be followed by seasons of darkness... but then the beauty overcomes the darkness... always. Eternity will be A.Mazing.
*surviving on minimal light and moisture is still surviving...you have enough, you are enough, there is enough... and when the time is right, you will be given what you need to flourish
*no matter your surroundings, grow anyway,,, be you, be beauty filled... even if your are in a damp, dark pit and no one can see you bloom
*when you see someone barely making it, give them a little love to help them on their way... don't condemn them for being less than, you don't know how hard they have had to fight to get where they are at.
*never give up. ever. #nevergiveup #plantlady #lifelessons #beresilient #thinkingthoughts
