I remember when I was a child my mom helped out my Great Uncle George and Aunt Beatrice. They had the most beautiful garden, lots of gladiolus plants, nice and neat. Vegetables all in perfectly straight weed free rows.
They also had a massive row of big sweet juicy raspberries. It was always fun to ‘start’ picking them, one for the bucket, one for the belly, one for the bucket, two for the belly, etc, etc.
Always about half way through the task of picking, these berries would get boring and old. I remember whining about “how much longer till we get to the end?”
My mom would always say, ” instead of worrying how much we have left to do, look how far we have come!”
Today, right now, the half way point, it’s time to look how far we have come. What was sweet and juicy? What is not quite on track?
Regroup, refuel, strive for the prize but don’t forget how far we have come!
