The snail replied, "I am climbing the tree to get some apples."
The worms smirked, "There are no apples in the tree."
"There will be when I get up there," the snail responded.
Sometimes slow, determined perseverance is the only way to achieve the desired goal. It would be nice if everything moved at the pace we want, but that just isn't life. Most of the great victories of life come from hard work and lots of sweat.
Here is the point. Keep climbing up the tree like the snail. You'll get there at the right time, and the apples will taste even better than you can imagine.
