(Remember the scene from Mrs. Doubtfire? I was a victim of a run-by fruiting more than once...ssssploot!)
After this week they will be a reminder to me that letting things be is sometimes the same as never giving up.
Let me 'splain...
This past summer our family adopted another furry friend. Her name is JellyBean and she is
(I'm weird...I know...I'm a cheap date)
As she ran her course, run, hit the fence, spin, run, hit the fence, spin, over and over again, I watched and giggled. GWH came out and he watched the show too.
(I contribute to the weirdness of everyone)
(I can't think when the temperature outside is over 90 degrees...my brain melts!)
This year I just let the pool water feed it. I left it alone, I didn't worry about it, I let it be and look what I got! We were both caught by surprise and I told him, "I'm making me some lemon bars!" Now, if the other tree would just grow I could make myself a margarita!
We never really know what lies inside. As Teachers and Parents sometimes we mess too much with kiddos when what we really need to do is leave them alone for a while to process everything we have taught them. We can't force it out of them. They need time!
So, whattaya waiting for? Sit back and enjoy "the fruits of your labors" but watch out for the flying citrus!
