Inspired by the Freesia - The Freesia is best known for its perseverance. My husband and I live in Oklahoma, which is famous for its storms! Several years ago, we were hit by a huge hail storm only to experience a second one the following spring. It was devastating to replace a roof after each storm. We feared we would lose everything in the garden that we had worked to so hard to cultivate. Amazingly, we lost very little. Within days, there were new blossoms on the bushes, and the flattened plants had regained their buoyancy. I know that it is sun, water, deep roots, and nourishment from the soil that allow them to thrive. I can relate to that. I am most nourished by a spiritual life and a depth of relationship with family and friends. It is there that I find an ability to persevere when the winds are high.
