Fearless Friday

Sometimes it takes an extra measure of fearlessness to be different in the midst of a field of sameness.

I am the dandelion in the midst of all these daisies.

I am fearless and a bit impulsive.

I am the strong and tough "weed" that keeps coming back after being pulled and re-moved over and over again.

I am hearty.

I am resilient.

My roots grow deep, when I find where I want to be.

Yet, my fluff can be blown carelessly by the wind when I am all used up.

I have learned that many are put off by the presence of a dandelion, but many are also drawn to its brightness.

Children pluck me and carry me around in sweaty, grimy fists. They present me like a trophy to their waiting mamas.

Mamas can't refuse me, for I am the symbol of all that is pure and innocent and summery.

I am fearless. I am wild. I am sunshiny bright and ever-present.

I am who He made me to be.

"But now, this is what the LORD says— he who created you, O Jacob, he who formed you, O Israel: "Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine." Isaiah 43:1

loved your post peach. I love daisies and I have always liked to think I was the one that was a different color who was marching to the beat of a different heart. Have a blessed sonday.
