CactI + CactU = CactUS

A cactus stands tall and proud. A cactus doesn’t bend in the wind. A cactus can not only survive, but thrive, off very little. Cacti come in all shapes, sizes, and colors. A cactus protects itself with a hard exterior but has a soft center.¬†Cacti have dormant periods and periods of intense growth and blossoming. A cactus has roots. Those roots fill the cactus with water. That water helps the cactus grow. A cactus grows not only spines, but, also flowers.

A mom has a lot in common with a cactus. Moms stand tall & proud. Moms do not bend when life storms blow by. Moms survive & THRIVE off very little. Moms come in all shapes, sizes, & colors. Despite the hard exterior, moms are soft. Moms have periods of growth and lull periods. Moms have roots too. Those roots have filled moms. Not with water, but with experiences. Those experiences have caused spines but also flowers in a mom’s life.¬†
