When Lovable Mum started learning flower arrangement during many many years ago, our lives are being constantly surrounded by flowers.
Refreshing and lovely when they were first brought back, like all new born babies.
Beautiful and elegant when they were displayed in vases, like all energetic young souls.
Just like all things in life coming to an end, their withering process begins…
In this installment of Lovable Mum’s Flowers, I’ve deliberately taken the flowers at their initial and withering stages for they always reminded me to live my life to the fullest, no matter how long or short it would be.
Life is a constant withering of possibilities
Some are stolen with the lives of people you love
Others are let go, with regret and reluctance and deep, deep sorrow
But there is compensation for lives un-lived in the intoxicating joy of knowing that the life you have
Right here, right now
If the one you have chosen
There is power in that, and hope
~ Emily Maguire, Taming the Beast
How many withering flowers have you spotted?
If you cannot spot them, perhaps it also prove that their existence is beautiful despite they are withering. 😀
Have a lovely Monday!
Cheers & TTFN~ 😀
