Don’t let that coy, I’m pretending I don’t see Mom taking this picture, adorableness fool you. When I say he is my cactus I mean it. He is full of living water (he’s got a laugh that is incredibly contagious), but he can also be a little spikey. I can assure you, he was born that way. He came into this world on fire, for what we are not sure, but he has a fire within him that he has learned to channel into positive, and creative energy. Thank God he has such a tender-heart. He may seem tough on the outside, but inside, he is such a softy. His love for animals far surpasses his mothers (he convinced me that he “needed” not one, but two guinea pigs — and I admit, they are adorable).
I am amazed at my little “cactus” growth. This child is such an open book, yet a total mystery to me at the same time. It has been, is, and is going to continue to be an adventure raising this plant. I am wondering what his flowers will look like when he is in full bloom!
