Fences and Greener Grass



The grass is not, in fact, always greener on the other side of the fence. 
No, not at all. Fences have nothing to do with it. 
The grass is greenest where it is watered. 
When crossing over fences, carry water with you and tend the grass wherever you may be.

I love this quote and am stealing it for our Prayer Line. And what a cute picture to go with it!

What simple pleasures you bring to my soul... profound and satisfying. Your puppy and the bringing water wherever you go are both beautiful

One of the many things which broke up my first marriage was that I was married to a man who ALWAYS thought that the 'grass was greener' somewhere else. We moved and moved and moved ---getting farther and farther behind financially and every other way. I will never believe that saying!!!!! What Robert Fulghum said is CORRECT.

Hugs,
Betsy

What a cute dog! I love the saying. It's so true. What a cute photo to go with the saying. You always post the most uplifting quotes.

He'd sure like to check out the other side, wouldn't he?! To enjoy the moment and place we are in is such a blessing.

I never knew that I was quoting Robert Fulghum when I've said that for more years than I can remember! Love that photo!
