I WAS THINKING…
about a watermelon I recently purchased. I wasn’t expecting it to yellow inside instead of red. It was the first time I bought that brand. I believe the taste was the same, but it seemed weird. I didn’t like the change. Then after I thought about it, I realized how foolish to be concerned about such a small change. We’ve all had to deal with immense changes in our life like death of a loved one, moving, health problem and many more. These times are harder for some than others. I know my faith is my anchor. It brings to mind a saying I once heard, “Getting over a painful experience is much like crossing monkey bars. You have to let go at some point in order to move forward.”— Author Unknown
