Transience is defined as the state or quality of passing with time or being ephemeral or fleeting. On one of my autumn rambles, I picked up an acorn and stuck it in my pocket. When I got home I planted the little nut in one of my succulent pots. I completely forgot about it until I saw this poking out of the soil. The first tiny leaf of what will be a tremendous oak. The fuzzy texture and blush of color have gone now, they only lasted a few days. The seedling is larger with bright green curvy leaves. I am so blessed to have caught this fleeting moment of beauty. I think I'll pass my time today counting all of my blessings. I'd wager they are a great many. How has life blessed you?
