Burs of Life

The burs of life seem to follow us like the burs we pick up in the woods. Some are more noticeable than others and can be quickly removed. Others are not so noticeable. They stay with us until we are ready to clean things up, remove them and move on. The burs are not always bad things, as with the burs in the woods. They are seeds from which new things can be grown. Knowing what will grow from them gives us our direction, and how we sow those seeds is what makes the differences in our lives.
