Nature Finds A Way

Given that our Memorial Garden was under water just a week ago, I was surprised and amazed to find it beginning to bud and bloom.

It seems impossible that the bulbs, plants and trees survived submersion for so long and still pushed forward to beckon spring.

Mother Nature is nothing if not persistent. She has her limits, mind you, but a plant’s purpose is to go forth and produce the leaves from which it feeds and seeds it sows to ensure its future.

“The greatest oak was once a little nut who held its ground.” ~ Author Unknown

Nature finds a way.

It’s an important reminder. When obstacles block our path and threaten what we believe to be right, fair, and true to our purpose – like nature – we need to adapt until we find our way beyond the barrier.

It means taking collective and personal responsibility, even when the going is tough.

It means standing up for what is right.

Life is full of impediments and hurdles – persistence and personal responsibility are the tools required to clear them.

“You cannot change the circumstances, the seasons, or the wind, but you can change yourself.” ~ Jim Rohn

We can find a way.
