Over several days last October I planted about 150 bulbs. A combination of daffodils, tulips, iris and grape hyacinths. I got wet, tired and sore – and in the end I needed a little of Lee’s help planting the last batch. I just didn’t have the energy to finish the job of planting the all bulbs, and it was harder than I thought it would be. But I did it anyway, because as soon as I saw the yellow daffodils and pink and purple tulips in the store, I had a vision of them blooming in our yard in the spring. In my mind’s eye I could see them blooming beautifully.
No One Could Have Guessed
I am so grateful for that vision because last October I could never have imagined what March and April would be like this year. No one could have guessed we would be sheltering in place because of a global pandemic.
Those beautiful flowers have been a source of beauty, joy and hope every day since they started blooming. I put tulips are in pots and beds in the back yard and planted daffodils all over the front yard. They have cheered me up and they bring a smile to everyone who walks by our house. I’ve brought them inside and filled vases for weeks, we’ve dissected them for homeschool lessons, and I even received a text from our neighbor across the street thanking me for the beautiful flowers she sees each day from her window. I am at home almost all the time and the array of flowers has been a primary source for seeing the beauty around me this spring.
Our Lives Need Vision Too
Our lives are a lot like the bulbs I planted last fall, we want something different in our life, we even have a vision of how we want things to look, but it’s not always easy or convenient to make the necessary changes to get what we want. It usually takes hard work, determination, patience and grit to make changes stick, and sometimes we even need help.
Many of us desire to have something we envision for our future. We can see in our minds the things we want to happen for us (could be new habits, weight loss or more money) then we try to build our lives to create that vision. One of the things that makes change hard is that the results are not immediately visible. Change takes time.
