bloom where you're planted

Growing up, this was one of my mom's favorite phrases.  Anytime I struggled in a situation, she would repeat the phrase like a mantra or a Bible verse.   I'm not saying I ignored her.  I heard her...really.  But never really listened.

Now that I'm a mom and have begun to experience growth and worry and pain and fear, I am listening now.  I get what she was saying all those years.

It's not complicated or all that profound.  It just means to make the most of where you are, your situation, your place.  Put down roots, grow, make your place more beautiful simply for having been there.

This has made ALL the difference in my life.  Maybe it will in yours?
