Dandelions Are Useful?

After another long day in LaCrosse with my mom at the hospital, my husband sent me a text with the following story and it made my day.  I hope it brings a smile to your face too.

This afternoon the boys went to mow the church lawn.  While Bennett was mowing the following conversation took place between Pat and Reagan.

Reagan asked her dad, "Why is Bennett mowing the dandelions?"
Pat said, "Why wouldn't you?"
Reagan said, "They're useful."
Pat said, "For what?"
Reagan said, "For wishes."

Everything that God created has a purpose, even dandelions, and according to Reagan they are for making wishes.  So, the next time you see a dandelion, I hope you remember the beauty that Reagan sees in each and every one.

Reagan, I hope all your dandelion wishes come true!

When I first saw the title of this post, my mind jumped to the myriad of health benefits dandelions provide. When I saw your daughter's comments, I decided I wholeheartedly agree with her. That's the best use of all!
