I was about to give up on this little cactus. It grew well, then it got sickly. I figured it had outgrown its pot. I have little idea of what I should do with it. Toss it? Give up?
Then, I notice it is blooming.
Life is full of unexpected gifts. It is up to us to pay enough attention so that we notice them.
Yesterday is history.
Tomorrow is a mystery.
Today is a gift, which is why we call it the present.
