The Pumpkin is always oranger on the other side of the patch...
This is just another way of saying the grass is always greener on the other side of the fence. Did you ever go hunting for a pumpkin to take home with you? It's like hunting for a needle in a haystack. You think you've found the perfect one then you pick it up and find a bad spot on the bottom. Oh, there are so many shapes and sizes that it is just so hard to make up your mind. The little one might be really cute, but the big one is going to show up better.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder when it comes to pumpkins. There's the good the bad and the ugly. It reminds me once again just how fleeting life is. Aren't we all a just a little bit like the lowly pumpkin? We get to shine for a few, brief moments of life and then our light goes out and we're left behind in the dirt.
Every new today we have is our moment to shine. Make the most of it!
