There are some of us whose “parts” have been replaced or whose “parts” have just outright quit. Those “broken pieces” do not define us. No. In fact, those misshapen pieces actually bring a new quality, which if allowed, do define us, forming us into a better human being. Why? We learn to overcome obstacles, challenges, pain, inconveniences, grief over a loss, and in so doing, we become stronger, bigger in Spirit, more defined as who we are as an individual. In fact, if it were not for these misshapen aspects of us, we truly would not be as bright and beautiful as we are today.
Peter Cotton Tail was kind enough to leave evidence behind when he decided to snack on one of my Tulips. Regardless of the Petals that had been eaten, the Tulip chose to continue to grow, to continue to bloom, and to open majestically for all the world to see. And in so doing, Beauty is seen in a new and unique way.
Two of my friends came to Mind when I was photographing this Work of Art. [George] , who has had more then his share of missing parts, is in my opinion, a fine example of a Shining Star. [Laura] , another one who has had aspects of her body break to be replaced, has shown all those who know her, how she has maintained her sense of humor and her Love of Laughter. May both George and Laura and ALL those who can relate to this post, enjoy my Gift to you this day!
