The Quest of the Little Blue Owl

More than anything else in the world, this little Blue Owl wanted to be wise like all the great owls before him. The only problem was, he had no idea what wisdom was.  To solve this dilemma, the little blue owl decided to go on a quest seeking the wisdom of those he meets along the way.

On the second day of his quest, the little Blue Owl asked the tall fence post, “Can you please tell me what wisdom is?” The fence post thought for a while and responded, “Wisdom is knowing that when life gets hard, an attitude of unconditional acceptance is best because it will allow you to keep your peace while the storm passes through.”  The little blue owl thanked the tall fence post and carefully pondered what he learned.

On the third day, he met a beautiful Hydrangea flower and asked,“Can you please tell me what wisdom is?” The Hydrangea flower thought for a while and responded, “Wisdom is knowing that beauty or physical appearance does not determine one’s value and worth, for we all are perfectly made on the inside… that’s the only part that really matters.”  The little Blue Owl thanked the Hydrangea flower and carefully pondered what he learned.
