But I also love it because it reminds that we don't have to let barriers define or distract us from being all we can be.
When I received the plant this spring it wasn't labeled. With only a category of flowering plants given, I had to do a little research. As a result, my new plant had several temporary homes before coming to rest on our deck.
And now, just look at her! (I think I'll call her Maggie.) She seems to finally be in the best place for her to shine.
Have you taken a few detours in life? Have there been times when you felt like the GPS of decision making was on the fritz? I know I have! There's been some times when I thought I couldn't do anything right. It seemed like everything I touched turned into a miserable failure.
Those were the times when I thought about Daddy. I don't even know how many different kinds of jobs he tried before he finally found his niche at the age of 44. But once he did, Daddy shone! And Daddy's late, but outstanding success gives me hope.
Dear Readers, if you have found the perfect spot on your deck of life where you blossom and thrive, I rejoice with you! If you haven't yet, what works for me is to remember it's never too late, and maybe I only need to make a little change to make a big difference. Come on out to the deck! It's not far and well worth the trip.
