Something To Ponder
This camellia bush has been in our backyard for twenty years. For nineteen of those years we were lucky if we got just a few blossoms on it. Last year our big tree was cut down, thus allowing the bush ro reap the rewards of full sunlight. Because of this, we were rewarded with all these magnificent blooms to admire! You see, that big tree had been in the way. All those years this bush had the amazing potential to bloom, but it wasn't allowed to because something was obstructing it. Hmmm, maybe we could relate this to our everyday lives. As humans, we all have such amazing potential, but sometimes we allow things or people to get in our way of reaching that potential. Come to think of it, sometimes we might even be the ones that our hindering ourselves! Look around and see if you can relate this to anything in your life ~ I know I sure could. Just something to ponder...............

Thank-you, Susan, for the wonderful post. It DOES give me something to ponder about. I know I am my biggest hinderance in many, many ways.

The Camellia bush is beautiful. We have three tall ones right under our bedroom window. They don't bloom very well either. :-)

Have an amazing Sunday. Love, Debbi
