Tuesday’s Weed pulls herself up and is determined to make a difference. She went back to work yesterday and got a bit prickly, unhappy with the resistance she’d felt. But Tuesday morning dawned with purpose clear and resolute. The message was, “Work hard and make a difference.”
To the outside world, all that remains of this weed is dried up thorny bits, of no use to anyone. But deep below the surface lies the sustaining life force in her roots that will remain, nurturing the future and biding its time until the conditions are ripe to bloom again. And her gnarled leaves are perfect for collecting errant dew drops and directing them to her center. Not all things dried and brown are dead. Far from it!
Like a crab that hugs the ground, posing motionless until it scurries to a new spot at just the right moment, this weed uses everything at her disposal to stay out of sight and yet vital enough to be ready to pounce back into action. She’ll keep the rock next to her, reserving its use as a prop until a day dawns rosy with opportunity.
Carry on, Tuesday’s Weed! You can make a difference!
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.
