Every once in a while I start to feel rather philosophical. Today is one of those days. As I am sitting here drinking some delicious Meadow Tea I started to think about worms. Army Worms to be exact. The two are not directly related. Meadow Tea is one of my favorite summer drinks. The plant grows here every summer and my sister has perfected the recipe. It is refreshing, delicious, and always a treat. And right now Army Worms are destroying farmers' crops in the area. We don't have any in our fields, however, our neighbor has them... so it is a likely possibility that they will be coming here.
Now, while those two things are both important in their own ways they are (in the vast scheme of things), not that noteworthy. But, it reminded me of how at every point in life there are always "Meadow tea" and "worms" moments. Sometimes, we get to enjoy the tea more then the worms, but not always... sometimes our lives are just "wormy". It is how you handle both of these things that speak to your character. Those drinking Meadow Tea moments are wonderful, but if you have it all the time... it looses its specialness and we forget to enjoy it. When it feels like we are being destroyed by worms, we sometimes get so worried about it, so upset that it becomes all we focus on. Problems in our life are difficult, and they need to be dealt with... but don't forget to enjoy some Meadow Tea, while you’re dealing with those worms. Life is full of “Meadow Tea” and “worms”, the question is…how do you handle them?
Hello, if you are a follower of this blog you will remember that Angela was doing the blogs. Well, things have gotten busy for her and so Stan, her dad, is filling in for now. I am not as techno savy as her so I am not sure how this will work but I am going to try and post on a hopefully regular basis.
