Never Give Up - Rock, Paper, Puppies!


Oct. 4th, 2007 11:13 am Never Give Up

None of us thought it would happen. We'd given up hope for anything other than greenery. Yet, after being dormant for 20+ years, I find these blooms.

This crape myrtle was bought from Louisiana at least 22 years ago. It was before my father died, so I was about 6 or 7. I remember driving home from our cousin's with them carefully wrapped for the journey. It was the year I broke my arm falling off a horse named Domino (a really big horse).

And now it's given a beautiful surprise - and a reminder that no matter how long it takes, it's always possible.
