This flower is hanging on the front porch at my parent’s home in Moore, Oklahoma. It was there before the tornado, and it remained after the storm as well. The window directly behind this plant is shattered to pieces. The siding is obviously coated in muck and ick. But just look at this flower! What a wonderful representation of the spirit of the people of Oklahoma. . .
Happy Monday, friends. Be nice to each other ♥
Wow, that’s really something!
Ahh like a beacon of hope – lovely…
😉 Still shaking my head …
I think it’s kind of cool, you know, in the way that testifies to hope. 🙂
Wow. That is amazing, and the flower is so vibrant. There are life lessons to be seen in that photo, too – yielding, bouncing back, restoration.
I know……funny little miracles.
Definitely a sign of hope!
And a much needed one ♥
amazing and beautiful…
A wonderful sign of endurance!
Endurance…..great word for this!! 😉
Perfect way to start Monday, great post!
Awww….Thanks and Hope your week is a rockin’ one! (in a country sort of way ♪ ♫)
A sign that is is not lost.
That is a miracle right? There’s no other explanation lol
My thoughts exactly! 😉
It’s amazing how that happens – little pockets preserved like that. Wonderful!
I think they would have rather saved the windows….but hey!! No fussing about it…..cause it really is a “wow” ~
Look at it this way, they don’t have to wash the windows now. Nothing better than new shiny windows 🙂
HAHA….We were just talking about how they do have to wash SOME Of the windows! 😉 And the siding…..and the brick…..but grateful to still have a home!
That siding looks pretty bad. But you are right, having a home is pretty amazing.
That reminds me of the saying “Bloom where you are planted.” I imagine this beautiful basket of blooms somehow cheers your parents. I hope they feel good thoughts & prayers coming to them from all over the country.
Thanks Delores…..with everything going on I know they are still overwhelmed by the kindness & prayers of so many. ♥
Incredible, and the perfect metaphor for the spirit and resilience of everyone who’s been caught in the eye of this storm! Good eye PSB! 🙂
Awwwww yes, Bon Bon…..the eye of the storm! 😉
The twists of nature are always amazing!
Glad the flower made it. Just goes to show that living things are adaptable, even when bound in a pot. Inanimate objects, not so much. With all the damage in the tornadoes and other storms, if as many people had been destroyed as houses, the United States would be soon depopulated by all the natural disasters. 🙂 I love the picture. 🙂
When I stand and look at the piles of what used to be homes….I am in awe that more lives were not lost. Speechless ~
It is amazing to me, too. 🙂
You saw the flower as a representation of the spirit of Oklahomans but I saw it as God leaving some hope behind. By the way, what kind of flower is that?
You are so right….lots of that HOPE is going on right now, too! I will find out from my mom on the flower and let you know! ♥
