and His view
Broken! The plant hung limply on the side of its pot and by the looks of it someone intentionally broke off its branch. Who could've done this? I had been watering it and telling it to grow (yep, I talk to plants) for a few weeks now and was getting excited that it was growing big, green leaves. It looked like it was going to have an abundant plant life.
Getting passed over for a promotion or for things we expected for a long time is never a pleasant experience. We are hugely disappointed for missing out on what could be a significant turning point in our lives. There is one instance in history though when getting passed over meant an entire nation escaping death.
