We can complain because rose bushes have thorns, or rejoice because thorn bushes have roses.
In life, it is fairly certain that we will each experience difficult and challenging passages. Within each of these moments we are given a special seed of opportunity, a gift. Many times, this point of view can be difficult to embrace in the midst of what appears to be a setback. We spend our time together opening our minds and hearts to the blessings that come to us in disguise. In this moment, we begin to gently be connected with success and failure. We begin to trust the movement of life knowing that there is much grander plans for us than we could ever fathom. Each step along the path of life, regardless of the destination, is an exciting part of the adventure. The moments themselves are the gift, the journey itself, the rich reward.
