I have an elderly friend who grows beautiful African Violets. She told me that African Violets take a lot of tending. They need the right soil, light, temperature and humidity. They must have the right amount of water, fertilizer and lots of TLC. However, she insists that all the tending is worth having beautiful blooms on the plants.
We have had this African Violet plant for years! It had flowers when we got it. The flowers eventually died and the plant was neglected. We decided to tend to it with the TLC it needed. We were excited to find blooms on the plant once again.
There are things worth tending.
I need to tend to my relationship with my family. It requires time and effort and lots of TLC but it's well worth it!

My relationship with my Heavenly Father needs tending. Thankfully he's forgiving and understanding. (We're now in Proverbs!)
Tending to relationships with friends is a blessing and a must, even though many days my friends are just thoughts and not actions.
So now I'm wondering about this blog.
Is it worth tending?
The past couple of weeks this little space on my computer has been sorely neglected, thus neglecting all of you!
If I own it, I should take care of it.
I'll try to do better.
