So I returned to the berry patch this past weekend. The patch that I discovered a week ago, and wrote in my previous post. This is where I saw all those big, plump, juicy looking, scrumptious appearing blackberries, that were inviting me to go in and indulge.
I ate 2 berries located within reach, at the edge of the trail, and just as I was about to jump into the patch and indulge, I saw something hiding in the brambles that stopped me in my tracks. I decided I would NOT take the chance to go in and pick these big, juicy blackberries. It just was not worth the risk!
So I returned to that same berry patch, hoping, just hoping what I had seen the previous weekend had disappeared or had gone away. A flood of disappointment enveloped myself, when I saw it had not moved. It was still there. I had no backup, if I needed it, no weapons on me whatsoever. The big, plump, tasty looking blackberries were there, just like last week, but this time in even more abundance.
My heart was torn. I had been running again for an hour. The berries would provide much needed energy and fuel for me to keep running. I wanted those berries SO badly, but decided in the end, NOT to take the chance and go into the berry patch and indulge.
What IS in that berry patch, that is keeping me from entering? Why am I so afraid? It will seem like a “Where is Waldo”? type of assignment, but believe it or not, you will find the thing I am afraid of, hiding amongst the brambles in the 3 pictures above.
Leave your guesses of what YOU think it is. I will even try and up the ante, and offer a “prize” to the winning guess. No, I do not have a stash of cash hidden under my mattress, no, I can’t offer a trip to Vegas. After wracking my brain of what to offer as a prize, I have decided to drop by your blog 20 times over the next month of September. (every blogger loves blog traffic……right?????) 🙂 I will drop by your blog and write a nice encouraging comment on those posts I read.
For some bloggers, this might be “the greatest prize in the world, like winning the lottery” (although I hardly think so….haha). Other bloggers might find the prize “okay……I guess”. And others, well, this prize might seem like “the worst prize EVER”. It is all a matter of perspective. And for those newer bloggers just starting out, who have less than 20 posts, I will stick with you, as you build your following. So here goes!!!
WHAT IS HIDING IN THAT BLACKBERRY PATCH?????? REMEMBER, ANY GUESS IS A GOOD GUESS!! 🙂
