My Bowl of Pecans

In August I took this photo on the way to my mailbox, then came inside and posted “Promise of Pecans” on my site.  Today I’ve gathered the crop.

For such a young tree, it sure has given me a wonderful harvest.  I’m anxious to crack the delicious fruit out of its shell.  Well, no, I’m anxious to have that task behind me.  That part is a job that makes my thumbs rough… but it will be worth it.

Good things come.  Eventually.  It takes time.  On the outside, things looked so much nicer a few months ago.  But it takes these brown husks to give me sweet pecans.  And I had to shake that tree vigorously to get them to fall.

This bowl of brown shells has given me a good feeling today.  For everyone who is hurting this week, this season… I’m so sorry for your pain.  Good things come.  Eventually.  And I know you’ll make it.  That’s my prayer for you.

    Yes, and life,just like pecans, sometimes you have to work to get to the fruit. But, it is worth it. Thanks, Sandy.
