… said it.
We’ve heard others
… say it.
When faced with something
… unbelievable
… beyond difficult
… not scientifically feasible
or just when we are frustrated
the phrase
“It’s impossible!”

it is impossible –
… human beings can’t fly unassisted by technology
… birds can’t speak English
… dinosaurs don’t roam the earth today

But then again
phrases like
… “I can’t.”  
… “It’s impossible.”
are not true.
Some things really are possible!

If we need evidence of possibilities
… we only need to look to Mother Nature.

A few weeks ago
I noticed these daffodils
… protruding from a steep hill
… on rocks
… in early March
… in below-zero evening temperature
… in bloom!

If it were possible for the daffodils
to bloom on those rocks
… with all that seemed to make it impossible to do
surely it is possible for me
to bloom in the situations I now face.

The words of my dear husband
… lovingly spoken just a few hours before he died
“Remember, you’re stronger than you think you are”
echo within me
when difficult situations present themselves.

Sometimes, all that’s needed
is to realize
that the word
“I’m possible!”
