Years ago (8?) my dad gave us a “volunteer” plum tree from his yard in a plastic pot. I set it in our front flower bed and basically forgot it. The next spring I went to throw it away but noticed the little tree had burst through the bottom of the pot and was firmly rooted, so I let it live. About 5 years ago we started getting blooms, but no plums. I gave up on it long ago. Today, The Toni told me to go out and look at the little plum tree that would not die…. 21 big plump plums ready to eat!!

Here’s to not giving up, to pressing through to bear the fruit in your life you have worked so hard for, for so long! Hang in there!
