Morning Coffee

Husband is an early riser.
He gets up early and stokes the fire
And makes the coffee
And puts my favorite mug
On the wood stove to warm.
Often he brings me the warmed mug
And sweet aroma
Today his gesture has pushed away
The clouds
And awakened the sun.

Today is the day to concentrate on the good. Look at this gift of time you’ve been given and don’t waste it.
Write that novel,
call that friend,
read that Bible,
paint that masterpiece,
build that bridge,
plant that seed….

Garden for Joy

The best, absolute best, thing that you can do for your peace of mind right now is to go  plant some seeds.

I can absolutely testify to this; vitamin D is necessary to your physical health and your emotional well being.

Cut your long winter fingernails and stick your hands in the dirt.

Sunflower seeds that were missed by the birds, sprouted, and got transplanted into a straight line in the sun.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Gardening is hope for the future.

Is it too early for peach blossoms? I hope not.

 

Gardening is planting seeds of joy.

Future spot of spinach, mixed lettuces, and beets…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And gardening in pots on your back porch, side porch, front porch counts too… This is the year to plant those seeds of hope.

I’m adding a link for those of you who might be new to sticking your hands in the dirt. It’s a great resource. Victory gardens 2020!

 

Now

Now there is time to wait at the window.
Now there is time to do something new.
Now is the time to let go of regret.
Now is the time to recognize the gift
of now; not then, not when, not ought.
Now is the time to breathe.
