Two Girls

Two little girls asked for a flower, on an evening walk through town, like they always did. The mommy told the girls that there were no flowers, only weeds. The two little girls did not mind being given a simple weed, instead of a flower. They proudly held them over the course of the walk and even took them into the house, when they got home.

The next morning...

One little girl got out of the shower and had her clothes in one hand and her FABulous find from the night before in the other hand. The little girl proclaimed that she had a "pitty, pitty powa." The other little girl looked up at her momma and said, "mommy, where's my weed?!"

Now, you may not see any reason to like the story, but Meeeema, the 2 1/2 year old, thought she had all of the world in that one "pitty powa" and Boog, the 4 year old, could only see a weed, but she still treasured it enough to wonder what had come of hers. Life may seem to hand you weeds, but you should still treasure them, because they are still yours and were picked especially for you!

Beautiful story.

Fascinating and thoughtful. I love the comparisons between the girls and the way they think. Love that she still loved it even though she had accepted it was a weed.
