Believe it or not, these gorgeous flowers are from a Cactus. I had to climb over rocks, cross a chain link fence, and walk up a very steep hill just to get this shot on my cell phone, but it was worth it. Even out here in Arizona, BEAUTY can spring from anywhere.
Life is like a cactus. You put up with the pricks, the harsh environment, and the feeling of isolation, and one day…. vibrant joy springs into your life. You need only look at the cactus, to get inspiration. Joy is just around the corner. You must be patient and wait…
