My Cactus Flourishes

What does my cactus show me? 

I knew it had grown a lot but I was surprised by how much it
had grown in 6 years.

The same cactus in 2005
 The plant took time, attention, care, and lots of light to grow

I feel that life is the same way.

And I have noticed that sometimes plants take off while you are not looking. Again a bit like life.

Whoa, I have never seen a houseplant cactus like that. It's beautiful. If it were at my house, it would be dead. I live up north - that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it.

Hi, when my kids were little I had a garden with some tomato plants. And without being staked and fed and watered (loved) they might grow up with some sun - but my lesson was they would not grow up tali and straight without the SON!
You are so right about needing things to help us grow, sandie
