Wednesday Wisdom No. 17

beauty in the ordinary

Conversation between Katy and Mrs. Campbell:

“I have a great many little trials, but they don’t do me a bit of good.
Or, at least, I don’t see that they do.”
“No, we never see plants growing,” she said.
“And do you really think then, that perhaps I am growing, though unconsciously?”    
“I know you are, dear child.  There can’t be life without growth.”

~ Elizabeth Prentiss, Stepping Heavenward
