"Please stay and look around.
You never know what you
might find hiding under
a thistle somewhere."
(A. A. Milne)
The past few weeks have been pretty stressful around NDP, and I sat yesterday afternoon and stared at photos I shot a few weeks ago of thistles and Queen Anne's Lace - weeds. For some reason, they calmed me down, and I came to a conclusion:
There are a lot of beautiful plants and flowers in our gardens, and they take a lot of sunshine and rain to grow. Weeds pop up in the gardens, and it takes work to keep the weeds in check so that they don't choke the beauty of the other flowers and bushes. But, every so often, something beautiful grows out of those weeds. Sometimes, we just have to look for it.
Life is exactly that way, too.
Have a good Saturday, everyone.
