Like a Weed?

The weeds growing in the cracks of our cobblestone front walk remind me that living requires patience and perseverance. The weeds are tenacious, as if they are living out their mission.easter-2009-004

Victor Frankly said, ” Those who have a ‘why’ to live can bear with almost any ‘how.'”

I am admiring our president, realizing that he, like others before him, has a dream of a better world. I don’t always agree with him, but I recognize that he has a compass. He needs one with all that is off course in our world.

When we know what is deeply important to us, and use that knowledge to guide our lives, we can live each day being and doing what really matters most to us. 

If a weed lives its mission, surely I can, too (and part of my mission is to overcome the weeds!).
