A gradual blossoming
from youth thru maturity.
Like this flower, our path through life develops more blossoms as we progress. While the first blooms are indeed beautiful, how much more so is the full flower that has been given time to fully develop. True, a few petals may be missing or a pest or two might be in residence, but how wonderful is the overall effect of the mature flower! How liberating to think that we might be like this flower, a progression of blooms over time, resulting in a great and natural beauty.
