Scarred and Enduring
Cactus have rather strong natural defenses, with sharp spines protecting them from damage. And yet this cactus is scarred from the birds and insects that are able to get around the spines. People are a lot like this, scarred from the attacks that get through our defenses, yet enduring.

I'm thinking you probably meant 'scarred' although I lived for 32 years in the Sonoran desert and I was more scared of getting pricked by jumping cholla than saguaros.ReplyDelete
I hope we at least look a little better after all that wear!ReplyDelete
