“Mommy! Come look at our cactus!!!”
My immediate thoughts:…ummmmmmm, No? I can’t stand those nasty things! Why would my little girl monster be calling for me to look at a plant she knows I’d have removed from the property if I could? Maybe it’s going away? She wants me to see it diassapearing, therefore, making mom super happy?!
There you have it! Beauty is emerging from the “plant of pain!” Yes, I am shocked- and apparently shouldn’t be- everyone already knows a cactus produces flowers….except me. 😉
