Our lives could easily be compared to the life of a Cherry blossom. Throughout the year, many different flowers bloom. For months at a time we get to enjoy the beauty of the earth as she comes alive during spring. However, Cherry blossoms only bloom for 2 weeks out of the year. How poetic is it that one of the most beautiful expressions of nature has such a short life. It is as if the soul purpose for their existence is to bring the world to its knees in shock and awe. Compared to the age of the universe, our lives are lived in fractions of a second. Cherry blossoms remind us that no matter how insignificant we may sometimes feel, our existence can still be beautiful and happiness can be brought to the world because we were here.
