Born Again Orchid

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:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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!
