It is what it Is!

This used to be my plant,
It sat in a west window and would bloom and bloom,
Then one day I put it into another bigger pot,
and 2, 3, 4 years went by and it never bloomed again,
...........
So I gave it to my older sister ,
and it sits in a west window and 
one year later it bloomed,
and continues to bloom and bloom.
And I get to see this when I visit.,
And it makes her happy that it is doing so good for her.
................
So I guess the moral of the story,
is that sometimes you don't need a bigger pot,
that if things are good as they are,
no need to be looking for greener pastures.
And this brings me to my grateful list.
....................
I am grateful that the plant continues to bloom, I am grateful that it continues to be a joke between us,
I am grateful that with age comes some wisdom about life, I am grateful that I know I need not understand
everything, I am grateful that I want for nothing, I am grateful that I know my life is blessed,
I am grateful for being, and for right now, that is enough.

  4. Sometimes plants just don't get over the disruption of being transplanted. Kind of like us.

  5. "It is what it is" is one of my bosses favourite sayings. so I hear these words often.
    So true though often we try to make things better when they are already perfect.

    I am glad you get to still see you plant flowering and doing well.
