Watering weeds?

Thursday, May 09, 2013

I spent half an hour killing weeds around the perimeter of our yard this morning. Sometimes ya have to do that . . . . but the focus of our lives can determine if we wither or flourish.

My wish for you today is that you embrace the good things in your life, bask in the sunlight and stop to smell the flowers.

Have a wonderful day!!!

    Stopping to smell the flowers is something I have learned to do over the yrs. We all need to have time to know about ourselves.
Very Good!! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    We have about a thousand wild onions in our yard this year. This has never happened before. They stink! I need to find a way to get rid of them so they don't come back.

    Watering your weeds - I remember reading some marketing guru who said, don't water your weeds - wish I could remember who that was exactly but thus the aging brain... But I always think that if I didn't water my weeds (and mow them) I wouldn't have much lawn.


And if I didn't water my personal weeds along with the flowers, I'd miss some of the things that make me me. Oh gosh - I think I'll step outside now and smell the lilies coming up out of the ground.

Thank you for reminders to stop and look at what's important!!
