On this first day of Spring, I was waken up to the most beautiful surprise. My orchid baby bloomed!
This is significant to me in so many ways:
- I love plant life, and so does my entire family. This was yet another plant that brought me even closer to my family, and of course I got instantly homesick.
- This orchid was given to me as a housewarming gift by my current housemate a year before we even had a discussion about us living together.
- This orchid took nearly two years for the second generation to bloom since I pruned her. Just because the one stem turns brown, the leaves and roots continue to hold the life. It helps me stay grounded, literally.
- Although I wasn’t there when she was first born, I was there when she was born again. This is a symbol of all of the new starts I have done this year after pruning out so many extra activities and people. I know my life is moving in the right direction.
God continues to lead me, and continues to give me confirmation along the way!
