FLOWERBED

Hello Mr. Magazine - - FLOWERBED - by Jür­gen Nat­ter www.nat­ter­brand.com

There is a phrase we have in Ger­many: “Man kann nicht nur auf Rosen ge­bet­tet sein” – you can’t bed your­self only on roses. Freely trans­lated, it means life isn’t al­ways easy. But there is also a sec­ond phrase: “Wie man sich bet­tet, so liegt man,” as one makes his bed, so he must lie. Alone th­ese say­ings have equal merit, but com­bined they form a seed from which a new les­son emerges. Life can­not be an eter­nal bed of roses, but a pa­tient gar­dener finds the beauty in ev­ery­thing that grows.
