Weeds or Flowers?

Sis 2 here ... 

Today as I was pulling weeds and working in the yard, my mind was still in overdrive with all of the things going on in my life especially as it relates to the people in my life. 

As I pulled what felt like the thousandth weed of the morning it dawned on me that in our life sometimes people and situations are just like weeds and flowers ... 

Weeds are sometimes pretty to look at but serve no real purpose in the garden ... think dandelions or clover. Weeds are sometimes ugly and a real nuisance in the garden and are difficult to get rid of ... think poison ivy or prickly thistles. 

Flowers are typically things that we plant in our garden by choice but sometimes are a lucky accident ... either way they bring pleasure and beauty to our garden. 

I am tired of the weeds in my life ... it is time to pull them up and make room for flowers! Time to figure out which people are "weeds" and which people are "flowers" and make my "garden" of life what I want. So to all of you in my life, time to show me - are you a weed or a flower? 

As I plant a new "garden" of people in my life, I will be keeping it #sassyandsarcastic 


  1. Excellent analogy. Keep pulling those weeds. Love you!

  2. Treat your blogging friends as flowers and visit their blogs when you can.

    1. Stephen--remind me of the link again. I'll add it to my blog lovin. It's the only way I have found to keep up on the blogs I read.
