The grapes from our backyard grapevine are finally ripe.
I did nothing more than cheer them on. They blossomed and grew and ripened all on their own.
It is possible, however, that the smiles and encouragement they received throughout their journey tipped the scales toward success. Perhaps they grew a bit faster, stayed strong through the rain and sun and heat and chill, because of those little cheers, because of the excited energy, the trust in positive outcomes, the messages of appreciation.
Don’t we all?
