The next time you convince yourself you just can't do something, remember this intrepid little guy and think again.
The tiniest green bud has broken through the thick, rough bark of a 70 foot evergreen tree determined to serve as a nesting place for birds, a playground for squirrels and shade for our hammock. It couldn't have been easy. Undaunted by the older and larger branches, it popped through and found a place in the sun.
It gives new meaning to the quote hanging above my desk, "What would you attempt if you knew you would not fail?"
