What's up buddy?
Will you dig a hole with me to plant these seeds?
(Smiles) Sure, never too busy to plant new life.
Turning dirt, little hands tucked seeds into an earthen bed. A hug and few word and I return to my grass cutting, lost in progress and thought. Yelling. I look to see Cole again, yelling to get my attention.
Do you think the flower has grown?
No, well maybe just a little. Over the next couple days we may start to see something. It takes a long time for new things to grow. It will start to grow roots that will help it drink in the things to help it grow. All that has to happen before you will ever see it. Be patient, give it time.
It only takes one careless thought, one misspoke word, one action/reaction to tear things down. It takes a long time for new things to grow and take root. Change does not happen over night.
