there's a way

A Snippet of Inspiration
Week Six

Because a little rain will fall into everyone's life and I believe everyone should start out their week feeling inspired. Snippets of Inspiration is a small shot of inspiration on Mondays.

Yesterday when I was walking I saw this brave little flowered vine. It had somehow pushed its way up through the blacktop and was clinging to the brick. I was immediately transported back to a moment in my childhood when I wanted to do something and thought it was impossible. I remember my grandmother, my father's mother, saying "where there's a will, there's a way".

I had forgotten about that moment until now, and I realize that I have often forgotten those words. It's an old English proverb that tells us if we really want to do something we will overcome any obstacles.

My grandmother was a wise woman who taught me many simple but important lessons. This is one I will always remember now when I am facing obstacles to those things that I really want in life.

Have a wonderful day, sweet friends.

  1. That sweet little vine reminded me of all the times I've seen grass poking up through blacktop on the road. It's quite an amazing sight. Now I probably couldn't get those vine to grow where I want them, but... And yes, I think we need to put perseverance back into our vocabularies.

  2. Great inspiration. Your grandmother was a wise woman!

    1. She definitely was. Along with being one of the sweetest people I have ever known.

  3. True words to inspire during hard times.

  4. I had to chuckle at your rain quote because I was just thinking of it ! Except...we had torrential rain yesterday and just another round and i was thinking " into every life etc etc but the key is LITTLE not this " LOL

    1. I hope your rain lets up. They keep saying we are going to have bad storms, but so far they have passed us by.
