An Unexpected Gift

sometimes we receive a gift when we least expect it. this morning i woke up to this beautiful bloom.  a bloom i’ve waited for since may, when i first received this gardenia bush as a gift from my daughter. gardenias are my favorite flower and are symbolic of my roots in the south, and a tie to my parents whom i miss very much. unexpected gifts give us hope and a look toward the future.
