One of These Things Is Not Like the Others

The bindweed bloom stands out.

I know that Bindweed is. as it’s name implies, a weed, but its simple white bloom can be very beautiful. In this photo, a bindweed vine has wound itself around the Brown-Eyed-Susans and its one single bloom stands out against all the orange and brown background.

It makes me think how good it is to be me, even when I look very different from the rest of the group. Of course, the gardener could root that bindweed out of there. I think that must be the chance we take when we are different.

However, many people do value the unique difference that makes up each of us.

I think this says to me that though I must be in the crowd, it’s okay to be different.

About NJ

I love to write! I realized in 9th grade that I really enjoyed writing. Every two weeks we had assigned topics that we were to use to write an essay. I liked writing the essays. I'm a mom and a grandma. None of my family live nearby, but they visit when they are able to come. I've been a pastor's wife and a grade school teacher. Now I'm retired and enjoying visiting others, and indulging myself in my hobbies, --writing and art activities. I'm very thankful for the blessings in life.
