Growth


 
My mom emailed me this picture, and it was too cute not to share. She had ordered these potatoes in December, and they've been sitting in the garage in a closed box, waiting for right time to plant. Now that the ground is warming up, she went to get them out... and found this! These potatoes clearly thought it was time to start growing... no matter that the conditions weren't ideal... being in a bag in a box in the garage! I love how these little sprouts have found their way to the holes in the bag (click on image to enlarge), and are reaching, growing, searching for light. Despite the adversity of their situation, they were going to keep right on growing! I thought of it as a metaphor for life...

Becky - This is indeed a good metaphor for tenacity! That said, I think your Mom needs to get these into the soil, or they will take over the garage!
