Last year at this time we were DEEP into house remodeling. I was fretting and waiting for the drywall guy to show up. I was in a funk to say the least.
About then I got a comment from Mary over at Country Threads. She said, “Hang in there, Jo! You’re really close and it’s almost harder than when you couldn’t see any progress. You know I know what I’m talking about. Focus on Christmas 2015 – won’t it be wonderful?”
I took Mary’s advice to heart. I tried to think about Christmas 2015 instead. About that time I took yet another run to Home Depot. They had a big display of Christmas plants…including this Christmas Cactus that was on the clearance rack.
I took him home and loved him the best I could….thinking about Christmas 2015.
Well now it is Christmas 2015 and he looks like this….
He’s much bigger and looking pretty good….but most of all BLOOMING!!
I am so glad I was able to keep him alive and so glad Mary was there last year with a little bit of advice…look ahead.
I am enjoying Christmas 2015 but I am also looking ahead to Christmas 2016…this guy will need a new pot!! Thanks Mary for the great advice!! Christmas 2015 has been my favorite in YEARS!!
