Less than the best?
Both of these plants were started the same day. It's easy to see which plant was fertilized and which wasn't fertilized. Without proper nutrients, they sure will not grow as well or as healthy. If someone didn't know what a healthy water hyssop plant looks like, they may not realized that one is malnourished. Yet next to a healthy plant, anyone can see which onet hasn't had the proper nutrients and stands out like a sore thumb.
Things like this remind us how important proper nutrients are for life. Customers and caterpillars both should have the plant on the left, not the plant on the right. Yet both customers and caterpillars would rather have the plant on the right rather than no plant at all! We all tend to settle for less than perfect when we don't see or cannot obtain what is perfect.
It makes me stop and wonder; where am I settling for 'less than the best'?
