Day 15 – White sheep?

A stunning Spring day – scudding clouds, tiny leaves emerging in the hedges, willows cascading like green waterfalls, and fields of white sheep.  Hummocks of white, flopped down amongst the bright green of the field.  

I park the car and get out to lean on the gate and watch for a while.   

And then I notice.  

These sheep aren’t white at all. They’re grubby, pale brown, with clumps of drying mud clinging to their tangled woollen coats. My romantic image of these pure white sheep is sadly mistaken.  

It’s so easy to believe that everyone else is thinner/smarter/more stylish/more capable, than you are.  But wait a minute!

Stop, park the car, lean on the gate and watch for a while.  And you’ll soon see that everyone else is not  as you’d imagined.  They too are grubby, pale brown, with clumps of drying mud clinging to their tangled woollen coats.  

TODAY’S TASK  

  • Look around you. Who do you see?
  • Imagine how they’re viewing you.  They no doubt see you as a confident, capable parent/ student/ cook/ gardener/ whatever!
  • Are you the ‘perfect white sheep’ that they imagine? Or are you just like everyone else, doing the best they can…
