Finding Beauty In Simple Things

I ought to post this to my main blog, Dreams and Escapes but I feel I’ve neglected this garden blog lately so I guess, there is no option but to reblog it.

My red-orange Vanda orchid is finally in bloom…hooray! I waited for it for almost three years. I took the challenge of growing it from a small shoot and it rewarded me with these lovely flowers. What could be more fulfilling than seeing such beauty on a beautiful January morning, the first of 2013 at that 🙂

About arlene

Life starts with a beautiful dream. Life starts in somehow believing that one day you’ll get what you wished and prayed for. Life starts with something you believe you can do and dream about. My entries here are mostly about my journey as a cancer patient, a cancer survivor, a mother, a friend, and about the books I read, places I want to visit and have visited, people I want to meet someday and mostly about the daily grind of simple living. Dreams and Escapes is about having enough faith to go on, the will to live no matter how difficult life may seem sometimes and grateful appreciations of all the things one holds dear. It is about the belief that I could share a little of my journey through writing and writing is an escape for me. When things get a little too hard to bear, I put them into perspective by sharing them here. Dreams and Escapes, why not?
