Orchid Cactus

I've had this plant since my kids were little, almost forty years.  It used to bloom once in awhile when I first got it, but since then it has remained a foliage plant.  Then last year it bloomed.  It was beautiful, but as it turned out, only a prelude to what it is accomplishing this year.  In the foreground is the Peace Lily I got from Sherillee about thirty years ago.  It, too, blossomed for the first time last year.  This year it has two flowers.

I would like to make up some analogy to human life and growing older, but I can't think of one.
