SOMETIMES LIFE THROWS us a curve. If we let them, our problems can overwhelm us. When we are faced with trials and tribulations, we should remember the following story about the buzzard, the bat and the bumblebee.
The essay was sent to me about five years ago. Research says the author is unknown and the analogy used may be flawed but the message is still important as the story has been shared with friends for many years.
Buzzard — If you put a buzzard in a pen that is 6 feet by 8 feet and is entirely open at the top, the bird, in spite of its ability to fly, will be an absolute prisoner.
