Rusty Pearl and she shared this photo of a little
flower that has pushed its way up through some bushes.
It is growing and thriving despite its adverse conditions.
I often wonder what keeps some people moving forward no matter what, while others give up at the slightest adversity.
People are like flowers. We need nurturing. We need to be watered and loved. We want to be noticed among all of the other flowers.
And yet, like some flowers, there are people who see adversity as a chance to grow.
They find meaning and purpose in life. They make a commitment to move forward. To stand tall.
They consider the challenge and grow despite of it.
And sometimes watching a child choose a bowl of cereal and a jar of pickles for breakfast is enough to remind us not to take life so seriously.
