Every Blade of Grass...

Every blade of grass has its angel that bends over it 

with a stick, hitting it and whispering, grow, grow. 

I was told of this fable in the last week...

The woman who was telling us of this fable spoke that even though the angel is hitting the grass it is not such a bad thing...when you think about it, that is when we grow- when we are faced with our misfortunes, our mistakes, our challenges. 

When things are going smoothly, we are pretty much status quo thinking I have got it!

If we choose, life is there to teach helps us grow and we grow only by stepping out there and into fray of it! Yes, you will make mistakes and maybe even get knocked down...but that is how you know you are in the right place- learning and growing into the most we can be.
 So grab your boots and get out there into the muck of it..the world is waiting for the surprises only you hold... 

and you never know who you will meet along the way...





  1. I don't know what to say about this.

  2. Love to get my hands dirty discussing this with you. Musicians all say their best songs come from their deepest troubles. Like a blade of grass, you bend and with the others around you, you find a way to look beautiful. Like a freshly mowed backyard, or the wild grass at the edge of a beach. It takes work and that is what most of us want to avoid. My hands are clean now.

  3. In other words, don't let the knocks of life get you will grow and become stringer and hopefully wiser! You know- when life hands you lemons...

  4. Thank you for sharing this story, I heard it growing up and it has helped me to realize that things are not against you but helping you to learn to become a better person.


  5. you know what they say...when the going gets tough- the tough get going!
    Nice story!
