Every blade of grass has its angel that bends over it and whispers, “grow, grow.” – The Talmud.
I want things to bloom. I am ready for Spring, really. Who doesn’t want a fresh start? For growth? I want to grow, to change, to be a better person, wife, mother, friend, and employee. I want to have help from others. To be encouraged.
But…I don’t like change, or do I? I like new adventures. I like to try new recipes, to visit new restaurants, or places. I like to change when it is my choice. Not someone else’s timeline or decision. But I also think we are all like that. Change is fine if I want it, but not if you are wanting the change and it bothers or affects me.
Bloom. Grow. Both involve change. And we have nothing to do with it.
