AGAINST ALL ODDS
Against All Odds
It would seem to be an outright miracle that this plant is alive, much less thriving. Growing threw the minutest of cracks in a cement floor, inside a building, and with no know source of water.
I think we have all known or heard inspiring stories of people who, like this plant, over came great odds and flourished despite their circumstances.
When we hear those stories our own troubles seem small and we feel a bit ashamed but in a matter of time, often to short of an amount of time, we are back to feeling sorry for ourselves, thinking we didn’t get a fair shake, not enough light, not enough nourishment in our life.
Obviously this plant didn’t think itself into success. It just grew because that is what it is supposed to do.
