There is an ancient story about an Empress, who was feeling sad and wished all the flowers in the land to bloom early so as to cheer herself up. 

This Empress usually was granted what she wished.  And the next day, all the flowers bloomed...except for the peony.

She was so upset that she had the peonies banned, uprooted, and moved to a different city.

Once they arrived in their new home, the peony then bloomed in all its glory.

Peonies cannot be rushed.  They bloom in their own time.

Like the peony, each of us blooms in our own way, in our own time. 

And what of the bud...

the bud is as beautiful as the bloom.

With all of its anticipation of what will come, we miss all the beauty in what is.

The bud will open, I promise.

And what of the mature bloom?  

Its soft, hanging petals paint a whole new masterpiece.

Like the peony, don't be rushed.  Every season is beautiful. ❤️
