The Toy Store
Posted by J Q on
One of my favorite children’s books is “The Carrot Seed” By Ruth Krause. It is the story of a little boy who plants a carrot seed and everyone around him tells him it won’t come up. Every day he waters the seed and pulls the weeds around it. As the day’s pass his family says, “I told you it won’t come up”. He is undeterred and then one day a carrot comes up, just as the little boy knew it would.
Seventeen years ago two women planted a seed in a tiny little abandoned building downtown. Everyone around them said, “I am afraid it won’t make it.” Every day they worked hard and learned from their mistakes. As the years passed and adversity threatened the shaky roots people said, “I told you, it won’t make it”. They were undeterred and then one day they looked around and saw their toy store had grown, just as the two women knew it would.
Keep watering and pulling the weeds until you accomplish your dreams, I know you will!!
