Letters for Emily - Camron Wright
...life is very much like gourmet cooking. The ingredients we are given are often the same as those that others receive. It is how those ingredients are put together - the detail, the time, nd the presentation - that make the difference. While some make pudding, others take just a bit more time, go to a little extra trouble, present their creations properly, and create something sumptuous (chocolate souffle).
...in life, there will be people who will throw dirt on you. If you shake it off and don't let it build up, like that old mule, you'll be able to rise above those dark situations that will occur in your life.
We'd till - I learned that good preparation is vital.
We'd plant - I learned to sow hope.
We'd talk - I learned that I was loved.
We'd fertilise - I learned to give back, not just to take.
We'd water - I learned that, as plants need water, sunshine and soil, we also need balance in our lives.
We'd hoe - I learned that if it is not removed, evil can soon choke out the good.
We'd watch - I learned patience.
We'd pray - I learned that everything in life is a blessing.
We'd thin - I learned that we all need space to expand and grow.
We'd prune - I learned that to grow the sweetest fruit, we sometimes need to be cut back.
We'd harvest - I learned that hard work can reap bounteous rewards.
We'd thank - I learned humility.
