I was wondering recently if there is a place on our planet where people are frustrated by all of the grass that is crowding out their dandelions. Do they apply grass-killer, hoping that the bright yellow flowers will be spared?
I've never really been a fan of dandelions before, but they somehow transformed into a thing of beauty when they were presented to me in small bouquets grasped in the two little fists of my proud 4-year-old girl and her cute little brother.
How could I turn away such a treasure, gathered in love with me in mind?
I think we need to look at things through a child's eyes more often. I think this world has all sorts of beauty that we have learned not to see.
Call me crazy, but I think dandelions get a bad rap. And I've got two little people here at my house who would be happy to back me up on that.
