Orchids

I’ve never had an Orchid.  I’ve always admired them from afar but was too afraid to bring one home as I thought I might kill it. Imagine my surprise yesterday when I opened the door to this, a beautiful Orchid from my wonderful Gran.  I’m so pleased she has faith in me as it is gorgeous!

As I opened the package to find out what it was, I was struck by it’s delicate flowers.  I marveled at how each petal helped to create the beautiful picture that was the whole plant.  Life is like that as well.  Each part of our life, each person in it is like a petal on an orchid.  They all leave a lasting impression and help to create the picture we remember as time moves on.
