The grass is greener where you water it.
July 30th - the grass isn’t always greener on the other side of fence.
The grass is always greener…wherever you water and mow. No matter how big or small, take care of the things you currently have. See to it that your marriage, your children, your job and the blessings you have been entrusted with get plenty of water and sunshine. Pull the inevitable weeds that pop up, Keep that lawn of life manicured and trimmed; don’t forget the edging. Add seeds of growth where you find deficiencies, nurture the flowers that bloom and rejoice in the sight of the healthy beauty that lies within you very own fence line.
If we take care of things and nuture them, they are always going to be better than without it.
Just like watering the grass during a dry spell is going to make it greener. We always tend to think others have it better than we do, but that’s not true. When we take care of what we have it’s usually better than what they have.
We need to cultivate our relationships if we want them to flourish. Give them a good watering and they will thrive.
We need to be the best we can with what we’ve got and make the best possible life we can.
The best way to avoid the green grass syndrome is to make sure you water your own grass.
Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.
