Thursday Thoughts: Matter of Perspective





Does the sight of a dandelion make you want to run for the weed-killer?  


Having received my share of dandelion bouquets over the years, the sight of a dandelion reminds me of children.  When my oldest daughter was about 5 years old, she asked me, "Mom, why did Heavenly Father put dandelions on weeds?" Why, indeed? I really didn't have an answer for that one.  
Thanks for beauty that can be found everywhere.

  2. I don't mind dandelions at all. They give kids so much enjoyment. First as pretty flowers, then as puffs of cotton to blow around.

  4. No, no, Dandelion is not a weed, it's a good herbal medicine
    If anyone has acne, put the white sap on the spot and let dry. Repeat when neccessary.
    Juice from the roots is good for arthrises pains.
    Pulp from the roots is put on sore knees and wrists for arthrises pains....
    Very young leaves of the dandelion is considered a lettuce in France, Belgium and the Netherlands and is called Mole lettuce...
    Dandelion is certainly NOT a weed!!

  5. OMGosh I love this! I've often felt that it's a matter of perception and I've written about it more than once. The blooms I see as I walk though my pastures delights my senses, although technically they're "weeds". I'm hoping to do a picture collection of the spring pasture blooms soon - can't wait! Thanks for sharing. (visiting from Farmgirl Friday Blog Hop)

Ten Things of Thankful: Even in Times of Uncertainty

  A railroad switch point on the tracks at the Golden Spike National Historic Park There is a lot I don't know. I don't know who will lead the United States for the next four years (at the time I'm composing this post, that hasn't been determined yet.) I don't know when covid cases will stop rising in my state and start decreasing. I don't know how challenging situations will turn out. There is much uncertainty in life. Living in limbo-land is hard. It's emotionally exhausting. It can be immobilizing. My body seems to think chocolate is the answer, but I know that isn't a long-term solution. What do I need in times like these? I need to REMEMBER . 1. R esilience. People are resilient. I am resilient. I'm thankful for resilience. 2. " E ach Life That Touches Ours for Good." So many people, both those I know in "real life," and those I have only met virtually, have taught me, encouraged me, and been examples to me. I'm thankful

Ten Things of Thankful: Last Two Weeks

  Grand Prismatic Spring in Yellowstone National Park, as viewed from an overlook I apologize for not commenting on your blog posts this past week; John and I took a vacation to Yellowstone National Park, leaving behind our computers and, to a large extent, cell phone service. We escaped the outside world and just spent time in nature. Though we have friends near Yellowstone (who we love to visit) we made this trip just about us, so please forgive us if we were nearby and didn't stop by. The crowds were minimal (though we did mask up whenever we passed someone on the trails) and we spent our days hiking, taking photos, and watching geysers erupt. Today, we are back home and back to work, and, in the case of my computer, back to old shenanigans like not letting me import my photos. (I was able to add the above photo by using blogger on my phone, but that isn't my preferred method.) I want to write about Yellowstone and have photos I want to share, but will leave that for another
