My husband was digging under yet another enormous tree stump and cutting roots. I was pulling out roots as he cut them, but one smallish root seemed to be unusually heavy and I was finding it very difficult to pull.
He did some more digging and I did some more pulling, and then we found out why we were having so much trouble. We were trying to pull… not a root… but a rock. Somehow as the years had passed, this small root had managed to tunnel right through a very solid rock.
We couldn’t have asked for better visual proof (and just when we needed it) that with time and perseverance, nothing is impossible!
