But a few days later the top part of the cactus was accidentally cut off with a lawnmower by the man who works on our yard. I felt sad for the cactus. It got weaker and weaker looking over a few months time.
I was ready to give up on the cactus, but after not checking on it for a week, I took a look and noticed the new growth jutting off the cut piece. The sight of the revitalized cactus filled me with joy!
I wanted to share this story and photo with you because it reminds me that even if things get screwed up, by myself or circumstances, life itself has a way of restoring a new order.
