This is Peanut Butter Brickle. People say a watched pot never boils.
People also say that sometimes they want to sit around and watch the grass grow.
Well. I don’t have time for that. I also don’t have time to worry about why our herbs that we planted aren’t sprouting fast enough.
Doesn’t basil know that I want some spaghetti?
Doesn’t oregano know I want some pizza? You would think that oregano should know all.
Girl Person says we can do our best sometimes and yet we don’t see rewards for a long time.
She says in some situations we can try our best, but what we think can happen just does not.
It doesn’t happen at all.
Some things may be out of our control once we plant the seeds. We can water the seeds and there can be sunshine and water. We may even talk real sweet to what we plant.
We may do our very best and we may expect it to sprout.
But what if the seeds themselves aren’t good?
What if we plant something that was never meant to sprout? How will we feel?
We have a choice. We can be sad and question all of our work and effort. Or we can be glad we tried. We can appreciate the experience. We can try again.
Hard work doesn’t always mean success. Sometimes there is just something we cannot change. It’s up to us to try again.
Especially if you really want spaghetti and pizza.
