Two Seeds lay side by side in the fertile soil.
The first seed said, " I want to grow! I want to send my roots deep into the soil beneath me, and thrust my sprouts through the earth's crust above me... I want to unfurl my tender buds like banners to announce the arrival of Spring... I want to feel the warmth of the sun on my face and the blessing of the morning dew on my petals!"
And so she Grew....
The Second seed said, " Hmmmm. If I send my roots into the ground below, I don't know what I will encounter in the dark. If I push my way through the hard soil above me I may damage my delicate sprouts... what if I let my buds open and a snail tries to eat them? And if I were to open my blossoms, a small child may pull me from the ground. NO, it is much better for me to wait until it is safe".
And she waited....
A yard hen scratching around in the early spring ground for food found the waiting seed and promptly ate it.
Wisdom: Never sit around waiting for what might be better. Size the day, enjoy it and if something better come along then you cab grab it too!
