The Anticipation…

I love orchids, but no matter how hard I try, research and prepare, I have never had a successful rebloom, EVER…until this year.   And guess what? I had NO expectations.  For once, I did absolutely nothing.

One day, I noticed a delicate, yet strong, shoot coming from the base of the leaves.  I could not believe it!  Since that moment, I have patiently waited for buds to swell, crack open and begin to unfold.


I have learned so much from this beautiful plant…


No Expectation


I am always amazed at the lessons Mother Nature is willing to teach us, if we just take the time to listen…

The Gift of Gratitude: Trees

Today celebrates Day 7 of my 31 Days of Gratitude.  Trees are one of my most favorite gifts of Mother Earth.  They hold such a beautiful balance between land and sky.


The tree is often a reminder to remain true and grounded, no matter how challenging a situation may be.  This stunning and intricate part of nature reminds me that my roots run deep and will nourish me, during times of need. I am thankful for the yearly reminder of change, as colorful hues release and blanket Mother Earth.  Most importantly, the tree teaches me to always…GROW!
