Driving home from errands the other day, I saw tons of these purple weeds growing on the side of a very drab and very busy road.
So I pulled over, grabbed the pocket knife out of the glove compartment and brought some home.
I love how vivid they are. 
But I had to be very careful--- they had some gnarly thorns and I got pricked several times.  

It reminded me...
BEAUTY really can be found in the most unexpected of places (and people). 
It's just that sometimes we have to get past the thorns.
And maybe even get pricked a few times.

I need to remember that.

A great reminder. I've gotta remind myself a little extra in this desert heat.
