Bulbs

Flower bulbs intrigue me. They start out so ugly and then something beautiful emerges. It takes patience to wait for that to happen and patience is not my strong point.

I’m contemplating whether I have the strength to dig and plant the fall bulbs I’ve gotten or if I should wait for a couple days. Busy day yesterday so I’m feeling that but it’s so nice outside, hate to waste the good weather.

My challenge today is patience. Patience to wait until I feel less pain before I do something that I know will increase it just by the actions involved. Patience to plant the bulbs correctly so they have a strong foundation to grow in. Patience to wait all winter to see if they’ve survived.

Patience is rewarded. I know it’s hard to deal with but calming myself down and doing things slower are always worth the extra time. Patience to accept that today is going to be a painful one but that tomorrow may be better. Patience to change my plans and adapt them to what I can do that particular day. I do this automatically now, most of the time. But some days, I need to remind myself that it’s ok to wait. I’m looking forward to the spring day when my bulbs are in bloom and I can say it was worth it.

I hope all of you have a wonderful day!
