The pain of going through a bitter cold winter, had the over enthusiastic me, plant tomato saplings right in the beginning of April. Needless to say, I was thrilled that Spring has finally arrived. Then, out of nowhere came the surprise snow and filled the ground in layers….and so my tender saplings.
I got down on my knees & prayed, that they survive this unexpected turn of events.I tended them with loving care since then …..look at the bounty on my hands now. Two tiny plants which withstood the snow storm are yielding Roma tomatoes in dozens each day. They not only survived, they THRIVED! They fill up the entire corner of my patio garden, with their lush green leaves and ripe tomatoes.
Life surprises us at unexpected moments, with a coldness, bitter than the winter storm.What do we do then ? Nature has all the answers, they say. Lesson learnt, persevere through all the curve balls life throws at you, you too, will reap the bounty one day, coz that is what Almighty has designed for you. Trust in the process! Grow through what you go through.
