Season’s of Life
There was once a man who had four Sons; He wanted his sons to learn not to judge things too quickly, so he sent them each on a Quest, in turn to go and look at a Pear Tree that was a great distance away.
The first son went in the Winter; the second son went in the Spring, and the third son in the Summer, and the youngest son in the Fall.
When they had all gone and returned, he called them together to describe what they had all seen.
The First son said that the Tree was Ugly, Bent, and Twisted.
The Second son said it was covered in green buds and full of promise
The Third son disagreed, he said it was laden with blossoms that smelled so sweet and looked so beautiful, it was the most graceful thing he had ever seen.
The last son disagreed with all of them; he said it was ripe and drooping with fruit, full of life and fulfilment.
The man explained to his sons that they were ALL correct, because they had each only seen one season in the trees life.
He told then you cannot judge a tree, or a person, by only One Season.
That is the essence of who they are, and the pleasure, joy, and love that come from that life can only be measured at the end, when all the seasons are up.
If you give up when it’s Winter you will miss the promise of your Spring, the beauty of your Summer, and the fulfilment of your Fall.
Don’t let the pain on One Season destroy the joy of all the rest,
Don’t judge Life by One Difficult Season.
Persevere through the difficult patches, and better times are sure to come in time.
Aspire to Inspire!
Live Simply,........ Love Generously,.......... Care Deeply,...... Speak Kindly
And leave the rest to the Universe.
Trails keep you Strong, Sorrows Keep you Human, Failure Keeps you Humble
And Success keeps you growing.
Know that You are part of that Oneness,
Take care, and be safe , through ALL the Seasons of your Life..
