Challenges are opportunities.
When I joined a group of "rich witches" last year, homework included purchasing a money tree (pictured above). (p.s., We are rich and "wealthy" in the BIG way.) A month ago, the temperatures hung below zero for a good "spell." The money tree suffered (too close to the double insulated windows: it was COLD). I got SPOOKED. I hoped and prayed that the damaged leaves would revive...but finally cut the plant back drastically (with my hocus pocus superstitious side worrying terribly). Look at her now!
Sometimes in what seems like "death," we find new life. Sometimes things need to "move out of the way" for other things to come forward. Fear not change.
