What a great way to look at life. I think we would all be a lot more thankful for things if we stopped to think what they really mean to us. It puts me in mind of a phrase I learned long ago.
Irritations can be like a grain of sand.
In the eye, it is first an irritation, then an infection and finally, loss of vision.
In an oyster, it is first an irritation, then concretion and finally, a pearl.
Just a thought.
~That would be an awfully big adventure.
~Time is what keeps everything from happening all at once.
