Sitting at my computer for long hours is a bit tiring, so I try to walk around the house, for short breaks or to get some coffee. Today, I glanced outside thru the screen door that leads to the backyard. I was pleasantly surprised to see the rose-bush full of dark red roses – a magical blanket of red. When did it happen? As if by magic, the rose-bush that was just sticks a few weeks ago, turned into a marvel of nature. Although I was not paying attention, the change did not happen from one day to the next – it took some time; slowly the lush leaves appeared, and later, the breathtaking roses.
This gave me some insight. I thought, sometimes, we worry so much when we are following our call, specially when we don’t see results right away. We tend to shrivel, to dry, and forget that the growth happens slowly; and just as those roses one day appeared in all their splendor, so it will happen if we continue our path and let growth and bloom happen naturally.
