"When the flowers bloom, so will great joy in your life."

Yes, it's a fortune cookie saying from Panda Express. (Side note: yes, I gave into the craving for orange chicken.)

My first thought, beyond not ever taking these things seriously, was "in spring time..." which is when we think of flowers blooming. That seems like a long time away with tomorrow being the first day of autumn.

But I thought some more and realized that flowers are blooming everywhere, every day. Even in the winter, there are flowers that bloom and bring color to the world. And if flowers are blooming every day, so can great joy. 

There is colorful joy to be found in each and every day.

What a fortunate realization.
