Patience

The orchid plant I've watered, fed, and moved around the house to catch the best light in the changing seasons for the past four years finally put out buds the middle of December, 2011.

tiny buds

And slowly, collected strength...
sweet

  Until finally, in January, on the first anniversary of my Dad's death...

it flowered

And then...

and then there were two...

and then there were three.....

 And the blooms are still emerging, on their own schedule. Which just reinforces the message: Patience pays off, take one day at a time, enjoy this moment - it's the present you've been waiting for.

  1. Beautiful. We had an orchid plant that continued to bloom for a whole year! I was amazed.
