Flower blooms are often ephemeral, lasting for a few short days or weeks, but the orchid, for all its delicate folds and appearance of fragility is an amazing flower that can endure for months at a time. This bloom has been providing me warmth since late winter where it sits next to me on my desk. All to say, you don’t have be big to be strong … and, indeed, as any distance athlete will attest, endurance has little to do with big muscles. It’s about the strength of the heart and the perseverance of the spirit that will bring you to the finish line.
