Blooming again

August Break day 9

I had no idea orchids re-bloomed if you cut them back and let them rest several months.  We've been watering the base of this orchid since its flowers died about a year ago, no clue if the plant was dead or alive wondering if our efforts were pointless. Well about 2 months ago, it started sprouting and growing again. It now looks as if there's more branches that will yield flowers than last year. Yesterday our first flower bloomed again and its beautiful. Thank Goodness we didn't give up and kept tending to it everyday.

Its amazing how you can find lessons of faith, love and persistence in the oddest of places.
