while the kinders were playing a farm game

with crops and cash,

some sold

some bought

some traded.

i thought all were farmers

until one came to me 

to say:

“she doesn’t want to be a farmer. she said  she’s a jedi warrior!

that means she’ll be stronger than all of the rest of us!”

swafon.com

i told him that jedi and farmers are both very strong people.

both work hard and refuse to give up.

both try to do things peacefully.

and that

they could work together with no problem.

they would be good for each other.

they would help each other.

even a  jedi has to eat.

even a farmer has to stand up and be brave. 

and they became a very powerful team.

A-14936-ShoppingCarts

i left the store

 and

saw the enthusiasm

on his face

as he

gathered up the carts

and ran

with

as many as he could push

and

then some

and

he was clearly strong

on the outside

but

just as he was hitting his stride

about to cross

the last fifty feet

into the store

a car

decided to back up

and

took a few tries to do so

and

a family

decided

to cross in front of him

and

a young couple

ran in his path

and

four more cars

drove in front of him

and

things

just kept coming

and

still he stood

patient

and

unflinching

just

waiting

and

when the path

was

finally clear

once more

he

slowly

walked the carts

back into their place

in the store

in a show of

 personal

 inner strength

 endurance

and

will

and

having no idea

anyone noticed.

—-

patience, persistence and perspiration

make an unbeatable combination for success.
