While out shopping yesterday in my local craft store, I saw a cutsie sign, for a garden I guess. It said, "Here's your last chance... BLOOM!" And thoughts came to mind about my post on weeds, and bloom where you're planted, etc., ....and what if the situation in which I find myself IS my last chance to bloom? I sometimes hear the world telling me to think of myself more often. That I DESERVE fill-in-the-blank. And in times of stress, it is so hard to silence that loud voice.
So, what if it is my last chance to bloom where I'm planted? How does that perspective change how I do my job, treat my kids and husband, and (gasp!) dare I say.... love my enemies?
