To be honest... I loved it. I loved looking at the trees and flowers that were growing so close to hostile territory.
I think about how we sometimes find ourselves in undesirable circumstances and we think, How the heck did I get here! But there we are.
We don't always get to choose where we grow, but we do get to choose to grow. Perhaps we should take note from nature and grow despite our surroundings, reaching heavenward always.
