Weed? or Wildflower?

Queen Anne's Lace is blooming its flat, lacy, white flowers. My sweetie, the mower, considers it a weed. I remind him of the time we held hands and walked through a  field of Queen Anne's Lace.

Weed? Or wildflower?

How do we recognize the weeds/wildflowers in our daily life? People whom we love, opportunities that sprout in our lives. 

Stress is our clue. If we feel stress or distress, then that person/opportunity is a weed.
And if we feel divine--love, compassion, joy, gratitude, peace--then it's a wildflower.

My sweetie is a concert pianist--he attends 2-4 concerts every weekend. That feels too "weedy" to me; my limit is 1/weekend. While my sweetie basks in divine music, i take a walk in a field of wildflowers.

  1. but many "weeds" are used for making healing tonics and elexirs. Sometimes one has to dwell a bit with a weed and maybe or maybe not the stress will dissolve and we will see the weed in a new way.

    Although that many concerts would be stressful for me too. Just sayin'

  2. There are two models from this company which come as gas and electricity powered weed eaters. The Ryobi Lithium 18 volt-12 inch (model p2002) Weed Eater is cordless and weighs up to 7. 5 pounds. It also features adjustable upper shaft to fit user height, a fold out edge guide, and it stays charged 4 times longer to give better results. weed games
