Impatiens are not impatient


Bold, beautiful and busy
can be a source of pride,
but it can also be a sign of 
impatience.

Seeking the next best, or always hungry for the next flavor
sometimes make savoring what's present a challenge.
Taking time to sip water and soak up sun is something that a flower can teach.

Impatiens grow easily in the right place.
Good soil, moderate sun, moist soil, and regular watering are what they need.
Perhaps the balance and moderation of the impatiens life are what makes their colors so bright.
Home, light, water = life.

I the impatient need to learn from the life lived by the Impatiens.

Impatiens are not impatient but somehow...
they are
bold,
beautiful,
and
proud.
