    The Chinese folklore of the morning glory symbolizes that lovers may only meet on one particular day out of the year. The story behind this is that two young people fell deeply in love. So much so that they began neglecting all of their responsibilities. As more chores and duties were ignored, the gods grew angry with dissatisfaction, and the heavens started to rumble. So, they decreed that the lovers could meet just one day out of the year.  
    The Morning Glory's message is simple yet essential. "Tenacity and tenderness in all things, be gentle but strong in your endeavors with other people, animals, and nature. Above all, hold fast to your goals."
