Doing its best

The runt in the row of bushes is finally starting to put out a few leaves.

Extra: But it's still way behind the others. Is it really the same plant, that straggler down there at the end?


I am impatient.
I don't deny that factoid.
Curious, also.

Some things can't be rushed.
Gardeners know that, and parents.
It takes what it takes.

May I persevere
each time distractions lure me —
teach me faithfulness.
