The Lily and the Broken Pot By Susan Hanniford Crowley

Last year, there was something in my yard eating my daylilies after they were past their bloom. In an effort to save the last two, I dug up the bulbs and put them in a pot.

We had a rough winter. As you can see part of the pot broke off. What you probably cannot see is that the entire pot cracked all the way around. I knew that I could not move them when I saw they had buds. So I bought a new pot for transplanting once they are past their bloom.

Clovers decided to grow in the broken pot with them to keep them company, no doubt.

The new pot neighbor is a strawberry plant.

I see something beyond a broken pot.

There are things in life that break us like heartache, disease, dashed dreams, and confusion with what life has handed us.

Some people are broken for a long time. Life is hard. They may need more time to heal.

Other people even if their past is broken, push forward to a new adventure, maybe even if it means going for a different dream.

Can you imagine being like this lily that keeps growing toward the sun? This is better than surviving. This is thriving and feeling joy and warmth in living the moment.

I love the idea of being a lily!

Stay safe and have fun this Summer of 2022.

Truly,

Susan
