Come Where The Grass Is Greener

destinationsToday for the first time I heard about Destination Disease. This must be a virus – the one with no cure and no treatment. Aspirins do not touch it and taking it easy only gives it more space. If you always want to be somewhere else, we used to call it restlessness, you have got it. Trust me, I was a lifelong sufferer. A nun who fought the cloistered life until she found peace now says this, “We are in the right place now. It may not be the right place tomorrow, but if we open our hearts and minds to the love of God, he will guide us to where we are meant to be, at the proper time and in the best way.” I believe this is true. The truth is that the grass is not greener on the other side of the fence. The grass is actually greener where you water it. All it takes is a garden hose to turn things around and make other people want to be where you are.
