They just won't have the stamina to make it through the winter.
Even though it meant giving up a favorite space, I volunteered to bring a slew of the plants into my light-filled home office.
Some of the little sweetie plants bit the dust fairly soon after being moved.
For those that showed even tiny signs of life, I continued to water them and give words of encouragement.
Lo and behold, I got a nice surprise one day last week.
Upon entering the office, bright red blooms from a darling geranium practically lit up the whole plant table. They had renewed life in the middle of winter.
It made me think of our lives here on earth. Sometimes when we are down and out, thinking there is nothing but darkness left, something good happens and life is renewed.
This past weekend, I attended the funeral of an uncle who was always gentle and kind. We gave him a nice send-off.
As sad as saying goodbye was, I know his own existence has been renewed in the other realm of life.
Losing him made me even more grateful for everything in my own life---the sun, moon and stars in the heavens, birds and flowers, music and even coffee at the start of a new day.
I know the time to leave this earth will come but, until then, each moment of life will be considered for what it is-----precious.
