Living in a bubble and staying out of a jam............

Yesterday I gathered these wild plums from my tree.  This is the first year I got enough to make a little dab of jam.  I thought they were so pretty sitting in the water, each one encased in its own air bubble.  As I considered this I thought how nice it would be to be completely surrounded by my own little bubble, protecting me from everything.  But that doesn't happen, does it?  We're right out there exposed to everything.                  Diane

These plums look so good. I can taste the jam just looking at them. I agree about being in a protective bubble some times. It would be great protected from some of the things that make life so difficult. There's times I wish I had a lobotomy just so I could block the things in life that bring such pain to remember.

Beautiful plums. I can taste their juicy goodness now. Yes,sometimes it would be nice to be protected from all those hard things in life,but I have come to realize,as I am sure you have too,that it is the troubles which make us strong.Have a super day.
