even back when we were just planning the renovation of our house, ive always envisioned my room having an altar somewhere where i can kneel before my God before i retire for the day.
just a few months back, ive made a makeshift altar in my room. nothing much. just a madonna and child carved on a thick marble tile and a glow-in-the-dark plastic image of Mama Mary that i got from a highschool friend. im still hunting for a decent kneeler and i intend to buy an image of The Sacred Heart (of Jesus) in a frame same to that that ive been seeing in the chap in megamall. i love that image. im definitely getting one for myself. preferably same size.
i bought artificial flowers just to give some life to my tiny altar but i wasnt pleased with the result so once a week, i buy fresh flowers. usually mums, because mums last longer.
just last week, my tiny altar's flower vase welcomed new temporary lodgers. aside from the usual mums, it now has a couple of roses, some leafy plants (names of which i do not know).. and then, sunflowers.
i think, sunflowers are special. ive read somewhere that they face/bend to the location of the sun that's why they are called SUNflower.
special flowers deserve special treatment. so for them, ive made flower preservatives(house bleach, sugar and ACV concoction) for them to last longer. i dont think they can keep up with mums. and sure enough, they didnt. a few days after being placed in the vase, they bent. they're still alive though. i wonder if it's the absence of the sun.
And so I learned that sunflowers bend fast.
but you bend even faster...
i dont know what kind of games are you playing. it's not in my rule book.
but either games, rule books or whatnot...i guess im done with all these.
from now on, im gonna do this the way i think an adult should.
if you're with me on this... then prove me wrong.
and yes.. ready or not, im gonna plunge.
