Today, I am thankful for the weeds and the dirt.
“Weeds are flowers, too, once you get to know them.”
A dear friend in college told me that, scientifically, dirt is just misplaced soil. Both of these tidbits of wisdom seem to deal with perspective. The past few months I have been fortunate to be surrounded by friends and family who appreciate my perspective, yet provide me with countless, precious, opportunities to get to know the weeds.
