This beautiful plant was a $6 bargain several years ago. Her heart shaped leaves grew steadily and she would occasionally surprise me with a blossom or two, also shaped like a heart. At the time I didn't think of her as a love plant. Even her pretty pink is the color of the heart chakra. When we moved last December, I didn't want to leave her in Virginia. And the moving company couldn't take plants across state lines, so I had no choice but to unpot her, along with some other plants, and pack them gently in a plastic bag, hoping for the best as we loaded the car.
Several days later, when we arrived at our new home, I unpacked the bedraggled plants and put them in new pots. Recently, I noticed how much she'd grown in her favorite spot on the front porch. I counted nine blossoms opened wide! Her long pistils, like antennas, giving and receiving love. I am love, she seemed to say.
I could see she was an angel messenger for me. I was having trouble opening my heart fully in a situation. My teabag this morning reminded me of her. "Wherever you go, go with all of your heart."
Enjoy your day with the angels and remember you are Love.
