If you tend to a flower, it will bloom, no matter how many weeds surround it.

it takes a village to build success in publishing a book – it takes friends that are willing to help – it takes hours upon hours of no’s to get to a yes, it takes many twists and turns with seemingly no end to the detours, it takes courage to face the unknowns – it takes and it takes and it takes – But then, like a flower opening its blossom – it gives………

Great things take time; that is why seeds persevere through rocks and dirt to bloom.

If beautiful lilies bloom in ugly waters, you too can blossom in ugly situations.
