Are you beautiful?

A good friend gave me a Christmas cactus, a houseplant cactus without needles that blooms around Christmas. I cared for the cactus carefully, making sure it got enough but not too much water. And every Christmas for about three years, I watched it closely, hoping that it would bloom. But it didn't.

I still cared for the cactus, making sure it had enough sunlight and fertilizer. I transplanted it into bigger pots as it grew larger. Still no blooms.

The cactus grew so big, I had no more nice pots to put it in. I did have this one ceramic pot that was broken. The rim was broken off of it and it was rather plain--just a brick color. But I decided to transplant the cactus in it anyway.

Well, on the fourth Christmas the cactus bloomed. Flowers decorated its arms everywhere, cascading over its pot, and covering the broken rim.

Beauty does grow within all of us. It may take a while to show up. That inner beauty is more than important than our outer brokenness. Today see your inner beauty, not just your outer brokenness...and see it in others, too, as you make a life worth living and Live Positive today.
