It’s all about your attitude!
When you look at a field of dandelions you either see a hundred weeds or a hundred wishes.
The Bible says in Matthew 18:3 that we should become as little children. We really need to become more like children in so many ways. Children see a dandelion as a pretty bright sunshiny flower and that is usually the first bouquet a mom or grandma receives from them. Children find joy in dandelions when they are white and puffy, blowing them, making wishes and dreaming dreams.
We adults on the other hand view them as weeds that we must struggle with daily, trying frantically to get them under control all the time.
It’s time to get a new attitude! Relax a little and stop being so intense. This generation more than other generations that came before us are so uptight about everything, from each little bite of food they are going to put in their mouths, to what they need to wipe their counters with to whether they should even take a deep breath or not.
Take one day off and feed the kids a bowl of cocoa puffs, wipe your counters with just hot soapy water and call it good. Step outside and take a deep breath. Sure, there may be some smog but soon there will be a breeze and the smog will be gone. For one day, try to relax and enjoy your family, life and the dandelions.
