Hope

Hope:

the feeling that what is wanted can be had or that events will turn out for the best.

Last summer, my husband and I bought a struggling plant that no one else wanted. Unfortunately, I don’t have much of a green thumb for plants or flowers. I joke that plants come to my house to die.

We brought the plant home and replanted it into a bigger pot, and left it outside, where our chickens proceeded to slowly eat away at its struggling tender leaves. We put it up higher than the chickies could reach, watered it regularly, and it flourished. When the cold weather came, we brought it inside. One by one, the flowers fell off, and it began to look sadder every day.

I began to think that this was one more plant that I had brought home to die. My husband felt that it was simply not getting enough light, so we moved it to where it could get more sun.

One day a miracle occurred! A flower bloomed! And, then another, and another, and it filled my heart with such joy. It reminded me that even in the darkest times, miracles happen. What we think may be dying may only need more light to bloom again. You are that light.
