Life as an Inchworm

In a world where everything is so tall, sometimes my problems seems quite small.

 

There’s nothing more delicious than the fresh crunch of a green leaf.

 

Sticks and stones can’t break my bones but worms scare me.

 

It’s not the destination, but how much grass I have to crawl over to get there.

 

Curiosity didn’t kill the cat because it’s still stalking me.

 

Humans have Mount Everest.  Dogs have a dirt pile.  I have a tree stump.

 

A foot is the inchworm version of a marathon.

 

Whenever you’ve got hot dog breath on your back or a fishing hook looming in your future, just take it inch by inch.  You’ll be fine.

 

It’s every inchworm’s dream to be two inches tall–then, we could rule the Worms.

Stay tuned, Invisible Friends!  A new story mañana!

    I bet it’s a marvel and horrifying at the same time to be so small. Lovely story =)

    My kids *love* inchworms. My son tried to bring one home from the park one day. Poor thing met his untimely end somewhere in my van. The inchworm; not my son, obviously!!

    But then they wouldn’t be inch worms, they would be two inch worms.

    I always tell people that you take things the way you tell a 3 year old to tackle them: one tiny step at a time. Hell, I taught a 60 year old bookkeeper to run a computer that way!

    That helps keep everything in perspective :-) . I hope all is well. Have a wonderful day. Blessings…Mary

    Aww! So cute! Inchworms are so vulnerable. They can’t run away. I bet they pray a lot. Haha.
