Orchid vs Hope

Happy New Year everyone...Hope your 2013 full of bless and exciting things ahead !! I have no resolutin and never had one :) I just want to achieve some goals in 2013 hopefully I can reach that goals:
1. Read the whole bible
2. Read a couple of books

Back to my title, back in May 2012 my lovely husband bought 2 pots orchids for my birthday. He is so nice and thoughtful on every special occasion in our life. One of them, buy me a beautiful flowers, as you my frugality ticking and tell him I love flowers but please just get something from grocery store flower cheaper and yet beautiful.

So, here he went bought me a beautiful orchids one of my favorit flower since I came from tropical island. They are so beautiful.

Here they are back in May
After about more than a month with its glory of blooming the flower fallen and I kept the stem. My husband thought that is about it and through away. I said, " I will keep it and water them and see if they will bloom again" which  I know they will if you take good care of them.
The last time I saw the flowers was back in late June. Since then I water them with ice cube every week. Sometime I dont have patience and kept asking when they will bloom again.
One thing that I learn from my orchid and God's remind me is HOPE...I just do what I suppose to do watering, make sure have expose to the sun and keep waiting and belief one day will produce flowers that Im hoping.
According to wikipedia here  Hope is the emotional state which promotes the belief in a positive outcome related to events and circumstances in one's life. Despair is the opposite of hope.[1] Hope is the "feeling that what is wanted can be had or that events will turn out for the best" or the act of "look[ing] forward to something with desire and reasonable confidence" or "feel[ing] that something desired may happen".[2] Other definitions are "to cherish a desire with anticipation"; "to desire with expectation of obtainment"; or "to expect with confidence". In the English language the word can be used as either a noun or a verb, although hope as a concept has a similar meaning in either use.
Finally, after almost about  6 months I saw a bloom come out from the stem and I am so happy. My hope for the orchid to bloom finally become reality :)
Here they are now my beautiful orchid blooming and  say hi to me every morning !
