(S chasing an escaped chicken)
Something I’ve found interesting in gardening is that manure makes excellent fertilizer.
There is nothing appealing about manure. It doesn’t look good. It doesn’t smell good. It’s gross.
However, to a gardener, it’s valuable.
Manure enriches soil.
The poo of one thing gives life to another.
Isn’t that the way it goes?
Bad outcomes and experiences can enrich us, giving new life to the things to come. Even sharing these memories and lessons hard-learned can help others.
Manure will always be gross.
Negative experiences will always be negative experiences.
But, when properly applied – or, when shoveled into prepared soil – they can take on a whole new purpose.
Whoever thought to be thankful for crap?
