Fading glory




"Each New Year, we have before us a brand new book containing 365 blank pages. Let us fill them with all the forgotten things from last year—the words we forgot to say, the love we forgot to show, and the charity we forgot to offer.” - Peggy Toney Horton

As 2014 draws to a close, I hope to remember that nothing is wasted in nature. The orchid bloom pictured above will break down and make a rich soil from which a new blossom can come forth. Just so, each moment from years past can be used to build something better. Therefore, I choose to think of the rough moments in the past year as an opportunity for a better year to come.


Best wishes to you in 2015!
