Over the holiday weekend, my daughter was invited to a sorority meeting with a chance to win a scholarship. It was based on a written essay, the student's contribution to community and school and need. Students were selected from seven counties. The student in our county, who needed it most- won. We sat there listening to the sisterhood and the minister talk about life lessons and The Tortoise and the Hare. I thought how poetic-I had taken this photo earlier in my back yard.
The minister told everyone who had been invited, there was something extra special about them. They were extraordinary! He talked about sports and told them, to make 'no excuses', if you get sidetracked get back on your path, remember this is your dream, your goal-you must 'focus' and to 'go'!
An obstacle in the pathway.
I thought who doesn't need this message from time to time. A reminder of what we are striving towards, who we are and our goals.
Mr. Turtle is motivated!
No one said the bunny had a twin?!
So, in the words of Mr. n' Mrs. Gordon Dove-"No excuses, focus and go!" (Real that was the minister's name.)
The Wren family wishes everyone best of luck!
It is a chair cover-in case you are wondering! Every year birds near us make a nest in an unique location.
