Plant Sitting

My kitchen counter is now hosting two houseplants. They have moved in with me for an undetermined length of time and I am slightly nervous about keeping them healthy. While I love outdoor gardening, I don’t have great success with houseplants in our dry Colorado winters. But I’ll take good care of these plants because they belong to my friend Peggy and I care about her!

She is in the season of aging parents and after many trips to Michigan last year and various care arrangements for her parents, she is taking leave from her job and going back to be with them for this season. I mean life season not winter season, although there may be some similarities.

The plants will be a nice reminder for me to pray for Peggy and her parents and situations which seem to have no simple resolution. And I will try to keep the plants alive!
