True Beauty and Flower Picking

Filed under: Friend — admin @ 12:08 am

A long time friend from Bowling Green, Ohio came to visit us last Friday. She is now living in Raleigh, NC. We have not seen each other for 15 years, though we have been keeping in touch all these years. I had half day off yesterday and we left for airport in the afternoon.

We walked and talked for a long time twice in the evening. The more she told me about her husband, the more I rejected Flannery O’Connor’s “A Good Man Is Hard to Find.” Here is a hard-to-find good man.

Once they were walking in the state park trail among wild woods, my friend saw a beautiful flower and nipped it off. Her husband said other people also appreciated its beauty. If people before us were like you, we would not be able to see this flower.

There is always value or something deeper than what we hear or see. This often makes me think. I see true beauty in his words and like to share this with the readers. Now we know how we shall behave when we find ourselves in the similar situation.
