“The frog and the Lilly pad”

A girl asks her Grandmother, “How do you know what your purpose in life is?” Grandmother takes the child by the hand and leads her to a frog sitting on a lily pad in a pond. “Dear little one, see this frog? Does he have to think about what his purpose is before he sits in the sun to warm himself, or swims with delight with his friends? Does he think about being patient and working hard for his next meal as he awaits a passing fly?” The girl responds, “I guess he just does those things naturally, Grandma.” “Yes, and by following his instincts and doing what he naturally yearns to do he is living his life’s purpose.”

  1. Absolutely true words and why can’t we be like that and follow our instincts which leads to happiness and joy instead of wanting to be the first in everything and butting our nose everywhere. Lovely and apt picture and story, Amira.
