Life has thrown a few curves at my family, so when I saw this week’s photo challenge by Sara Rosso was curves that was my first thought. My next thought was how in the world would I portray that in photos when I no longer blog about the details of our life. Luckily I have a few photos that I think help tell our story.
When life throws you a curve you have to go with it.
Our biggest curve was thrown by a school.
It made us feel very prickly like the curves of this Aloe Vera plant.
Not at all comfortable like this bed.
The curves brought thorns to our rose.
That were expressed by explaining that differences can be like orchids having a beauty all their own.
Yet, my rose turned orchid fell under the weight of pests and lack of strong support.
Deflecting negativity is hard even for stronger plants. Thus, a garden ball is sometimes needed.
The hole in the heart will heal, although not without scars.
I know the rose will bloom again atop the thorns.
