I have a need. I need something soft, something fluffy, something to sink into. My pillow? My dreams? A breeze that whispers renewal? I want to drift into the softness.
As I contemplate the blissful drift, something brings me back. It is something that is hard, beating, and glowing inside me. Need = Strength. When I desire softness above all else and start to melt into it, my inner strength is revealed, and I grow strong because I see that others have the need for softness as well. And I cannot just partake in restorative softness and comfort and healing until I take the hand of the ones I love and lead them with me towards relief.
This weed for me is soft, and simple and undemanding, just what I needed. So now I am renewed and stronger. When I sink into bed tonight, I will have the reserve to soften the day of my loved one, perhaps in just a tiny way. But every little bit of cushioning helps, yes?
Thank you dear weed, for your softness.
Please come back tomorrow for a new “Weed Image of the Day” and let me know which ones you like.
We and our weeds are so much more than what we first appear to be.

Thank you Aina. Even exhausted mothers can get renewed by the need of others! That was me last night.
