The Rose Within

 
A man planted a rose and watered it faithfully and before it blossomed, he examined it.

He saw the bud that would soon blossom, but noticed thorns upon the stem and he thought, "How can any beautiful flower come from a plant burdened with so many sharp thorns? Saddened by this thought, he neglected to water the rose, and just before it was ready to bloom, it died.
 
So it is with many people. Within every soul there is a rose. Many of us look at ourselves  and see only the thorns, the defects and neglect to water the rose within us, and eventually it dies without realising its Potential.

Some people do not see the rose within themselves; someone else must show it to them. One of the greatest gifts a person can possess is to be able to reach past the thorns of another, and find the rose within them.

Help others to realize they can overcome their faults. If we show them the "rose" within themselves, they will conquer their thorns. Only then will they blossom many times over...

A note to dear readers

"Courage is not defined by those who fought and did not fall, but by those who fought, fell and rose again"
