I went to the grocery store and there was a small table with plants for sale. There on that table there was a small plant that needed so much love. Her pot was hanging halfway off of the table and it looked like she might fall. She was wilted, her leaves were dirty, her ends were brown and she was in desperate need of some water. I
have been there, in need of a haircut, nourishment and love.
She looked like she was clinging onto the little life she had left in her. Her pot was cracked which made me think, had she fallen off of that table before? I could not possibly leave her there. I picked her up and put her in the front of my cart. I brought her home and put her in a new pot and I watered her. I gently wiped the
dirt away and trimmed her dry ends. Within hours she was alive again and her wilted leaves lifted to the sky. She sits on my desk as I write. Every day she looks better and better, she is growing.
I know it is a tough time with health, weather and all things going on in the world. It feels like clinging on the edge of the table. The only one thing we can control is how we take care of ourselves and others.
Hang in there,
