Girls are like apples...

the best ones are at the top of the trees.
The boys don't want to reach for the good ones
because they are afraid of falling and getting hurt.
Instead, they just get the rotten apples
that are on the ground that aren't as good, but easy.
So the apples at the top think there is something wrong with them.
When in reality, they are amazing.
They just have to wait for the right boy to come along;
the one who's brave enough 
to climb all the way to the top of the tree.

My friend gave this to me at church last Sunday. I think it's a good analogy and quite true. Since I work with the young women at church, I think it will be nice to use in a talk or lesson some time.

What do you think?

Read my comment on knuffle bunny. I have several friends that need to see and read this. See Jill you were just very high on the tree and bad--- Rob was willing to climb higher and higher. Way to go rob. Nick, jason and jon and john really didn't love us because we were the rotten apples that were easy to get. Nick did have a struggle there for a while though having to compete from amsterdam. Poor nick. poor troy.

Hey speak for yourself. I was not easy ask John. I was up there. It is a good thing John is so tall. I do have to say
I love this analogy. It paints a great picture, especially for the yw.
