I know some have flowers all year round, but truly, not so here in NYC! So I was took joy to see these flowers blooming on New Year's Day as I walked through the park.
On the one hand, I'd like to say that we need to take it as a lesson to celebrate and grow, and show our strengths when the weather favors us, and to prepare and consolidate when it's unfavorable, until we shine again. On the other hand, the perseverance needed to bloom even when it's bad out is something to be admired.
So maybe I should just forget wondering about a lesson and enjoy the beauty and grace of roses blooming long beyond the season and making people stop and smile.
Have a wonderful year in whatever you do! :)
