Today this little Christmas cactus reminded me that the holidays are almost upon us…
Hey, little Christmas cactus – you are like weeks and weeks early. What’s up with that?
You’re like a bad pre-holiday sale at Macy’s – rushing me toward a wonderful thing that I’m not quite yet prepared for.
People, this plant looked practically dead from March until now – only when the glam of summer wanes does it fall open and show its stuff! The gentle autumn sun gives just enough power to draw this little plant out of its slumber.
Ok, ok. Summer is gone. I get it.
I always think I’ll miss summer so much when it is slipping away.
But little moments like this remind me that beautiful things can still grow in the dark days of winter.
That, and that I need to plan my Thanksgiving menu, because the holidays are almost upon us.
