Anxious cucumber - thanks to worylessjourney.com

“You’re worried about what-ifs. Well, what if you stopped worrying?” ~Shannon Celebi

“I am an old man and have known a great many troubles, but most of them have never happened.” ~Mark Twain

“You’re trying to eat grass that isn’t there. Why don’t you give it a chance to grow?” ~Watership Down (Richard Adams)

“Worry means you suffer twice.” ~J.K. Rowling

“Sorrow looks back, Worry looks around, Faith looks up.”

~Ralph Waldo Emerson




Note: You may not be able to avoid #1, but you can move to #2. And after that? Heck, #3 is almost unavoidable. Have a great weekend, all you wonderful fellow cucumbers!

    Such great quotes from great authors! Watership Down is a classic and have to agree with Mark Twain.

  8. I try to focus on only one what-if: What if I were to assume that I am exactly where God wants me to be?

    Since none of the cukes have come in our garden, that remark feels a bit seedy to me. Couldn’t resist. I apologize in advance. Excellent quotes, Mitch.

    That got a laugh out of me. Yesterday a neighbor gave me 2 homegrown cucumbers and my granddaughter immediately ate one. She mentioned how juicy it was. I showed her your picture and she questioned the percentage of water. She thought it was more, so she is on a google quest to find out.
