Photo-A-Day #1826

Today’s photo is the last photo of a five year run. Part of the reason that I took this one photo is that the plant in it is just growing. It reminds me that taking a journey begins with small steps. Seeds do not blossom overnight. It takes time to grow and become something of significance. People have asked me how I could take a photo every single day. The thing is that I don’t think of the five years, the one year, the one month or the one week. I think of the one day it lets me focus on what is important in that day, in that moment.

If you are wondering where the seed came from it actually is one of the wisteria seeds that Eva and I collected back a month ago. We took them and placed them in plastic bags with a paper towel that I soaked. I then taped the bags to the windows in the front of the house, they got sun every day and they sprouted and grew like crazy. On Sunday my brother-in-law was turning the compost pile and I took some of it to plant the four seeds. The one in the photo was the only one that really made it. So, given enough time it will most likely wrap itself around a tree like the one I took a photo of for Photo-A-Day #1100.

Check out Eva’s drink. That is Daddy DIY at the best. Eva loves smoothies and today she drank the whole thing (one half in the morning and one half at night). A smoothie does not go through the cover of a sippy cup easily so instead I used Glad Press and Seal and popped a straw through it so she could enjoy it easily. I was pretty happy with myself for how that worked.

Tonight Allison and I had our Financial Peace University class. It was a decent class about about working your strengths. It was all about finding the best job for which you are suited. I suggested to the group that they enjoy reading Jonathan Field’s book Career Renegade.

    5 years, congrats. Nice pic. It’s a good reminder that we need to give our seeds/whatever is important to us the proper care or it will most likely not grow. Great lessons from the smallest of things.
