The photo is an amaryllis that hadn’t bloomed in a couple of years. But my sweet friend never gave up hope. She kept nursing it along despite its lack of response. And just look at it now. The blooms are so remarkable, I just had to share.
Now, I don’t normally share stories with a lesson, but this one is super special. You see, this particular amaryllis-doctoring friend is….at this very moment….undergoing chemotherapy for breast cancer. And she is so joyful and resolute in looking forward to the day when she……like her beloved amaryllis …….will bloom in health once again.
Well, we are with you, dear friend …..and are so thankful for you and for your lesson in the value of waiting.
We hear you.
And in your honor…..we will keep tending the unresponsive amaryllis in our own lives.
Until the day…….we see the bloom.
