“Perhaps I am stronger then I think.”– Thomas Merton

I have always loved orchids. They have such delicate flowers, yet strong plants…to endure my not so green thumb. I remember the day Clyde appeared with a stunning orchid for my birthday. I thought I’d better “up” my plant care knowledge. I found out sometimes less is more with even an orchid. They don’t like a lot of fuss. They are strong with a delicate edge…. kinda like we women.

How many times have you thought…ohhh I can’t do this!!! But low and behold you managed to do it…be it opening a pickle jar, walking away from an abusive relationship, battling and surviving cancer or nailing a job after being let go from a job you’ve been at for 25 years. I don’t think we have a clue at how incredibly strong we are…until we are tested….and tested again and again. You’re not alone in your “battles”… gather your strength from others if need be. It takes a boat load of courage to ask for help some times.

I hope this weekend brings you gentle reminders of your strength… maybe you will find an orchid calling your name. Have a beautiful weekend. Peace out for now!
