I had been worried about Red Lady, my red Hibiscus, all through summer. Moonlight, the yellow Hibiscus, had been flowering profusely while Red Lady produced hardly any flowers. Somehow now the tables have been turned and Red Lady has started to bloom, while Moonlight is taking a back seat.
It is clear now that she just wasn't ready to send out her blossoms and needed more time than Moonlight to settle in. This discovery has been a wonderful blessing as it is teaching me to look at people a little more differently.
In some people's lives we may be able to see the obvious but they are just not there yet. It doesn't help to force the issue, we need to learn to let them be and in their own time they will come around. The best thing we can do is to support them and encourage them throughout the process as best we can.
