Crab apples

"Women are like apples on trees. The best ones are at the top of the tree. But most men don't want to reach for the good ones because they are afraid of falling and getting hurt. Instead, they sometimes take the apples from the ground that aren't as good, but easy.

"The apples at the top think something is wrong with them, when in reality, they're amazing. They just have to wait for the right man to come along, the one who is brave enough to climb all the way to the top of the tree.

"I believe there's a lot of truth in this. I also believe it extends to those we choose as our friends. Sometimes it's easier to be friends with the apples on the ground. But if we gave the effort to "pick" our friends from the top of the tree, the reward would be much sweeter. I know I've been blessed with many friendships that were worth the tree climbing effort."
