Living in the Moment

hibiscusAll Winter I have asked this hibiscus plant which had been on my patio for the summer and fall to please bloom again. Several days ago I noticed that one bloom had developed. Today, March 17, 2016, I climbed out of bed noticing the bud was still tightly closed. I moved into my usual routine of coffee, reading the paper, answering emails. Just ventured back to bedroom and discovered a full blooming flower! I have learned as I wrote about in this piece, that one must enjoy the here and now. My beautiful hibiscus flower will be gone in a day or two. So will friends, relatives and perhaps even me. Live in the moment!
