"Reflect upon your present blessings, of which every man has plenty;

not on your past misfortunes of which all men have some."

Someone stole my beloved tree!

Ok, so it isn't a LARGE tree but it was a LARGE potted plant which would grow into a tree if planted in the ground!

Cries! I am saddened by the work of the thief who carted my beautiful plant away sometime between last night and this morning! It was strategically placed outside of my gate cos I could admire it as i backed my car out of the house each morning. It brought a smile to my face! It reminded me of how lovely God's creations are and now it's GONE!!!

To beautify the pot, i had planted large japanese roses with matching colours as ground cover! Now, BOTH the flowering plants are gone!

I am sad. It was my fault for putting something of value outside. I thought the pot would be too large and heavy for anyone to cart away! Silly me!

I guess others liked the plant too...

I don't even know the name of the plant. I will have to scour for it in plant shops for a replacement. Thing is, it was a gift from someone who no longer attends my church. it was a very thoughtful gesture cos she came to my house with the LARGE pot and then smaller plant (like 3 years ago?) to present it to me cos she heard that I liked the plant.... Cries! I truly appreciated her kindness, thoughtfulness and hard work of finding the plant and lugging it over to my place!

I know a replacement would not be THE same but I would still remember when I look at it each day... call me sentimental.
