I find this ironic, because I'm pretty sure that's a straight up challenge to my mother. She is a professional thriver. She taught me the phrase "bloom where you're planted," and she still embodies this concept.
1. grow well: to grow vigorously and healthily
2. do well: to be successful and often profitable
Synonyms: grow well, be healthy, flourish, bloom, blossom, prosper, succeed, increase
My whole life I've seen her thrive as an artist, a gardener, a seamstress, a teacher, a reader, a writer, a friend, a daughter, a sister, a pastor's wife, and a homeschooling Mom of five kids.
Even now, I think she wakes up every morning with this mantra: "C'mon world, dare me to thrive."
Hers is an unquenchable spirit.
