Mud and Flowers

No matter how busy I get, it is always good to take time and chat with my neighbor.

My neighbor told me that the most beautiful flowers come from the most god-awful mud.

She was telling me that sometimes when life gets difficult there just may be something extraordinarily rewarding coming from all that turmoil, aggravation, and fuss.

I learned a lot in that ten-minute chat.
