Grapevines are bearers of yummy fruit, basis for yummy juice. My mother-in-law used to have them and make the juice...no additives. Froze it..and when thawed, watered it down - b/c the flavor was soo strong. No sugar...just yumminess!!
Grapevines both hold a fence up and can break it down b/c of the way the vine grows and tendrils seek nooks and crannies. So is the way gossip, or encouragement, can be!!
Why not see the potential, tell the truth that's good!?!!!! and "hold the fence of life UP!!!!??!!!! Praise where praise is due, pass it on, find the good side of negative when possible = i.e., stubbornness might be bad, but tenacity is awesome!!! Charge up that grapevine to the good, that is holding up the fence!!! :-) And hold fast to it!!! :-)
Instead of gossiping, not really knowing if it's true, or not knowing the another side to the story, and spreading speculation usually connected with tearing the grapevine and the fence Down!!
I love grapevines when they are pretty, when they are bearing delicious fruit, when they are used well by someone who knows how to use them and the fruit!! Love the sun and rain - that charges them up in nature to produce said fruit!!!
'Nuff said 'bout that!! Let's keep rubbing shoulders with all you out there who Hold Charged Grapevines!!
