I was having a Facebook discussion with a friend recently.
She has been sharing a beautiful painting she is working on and I've been amazed at the strokes that produce such art. I told her I wished I could paint or even draw and hoped to give it a try someday. But my expectation was not to do anything like she is doing, it's not "in" me.
She then reminded me of my garden and I once again realized that it is such an important creative outlet.
It is most definitely "in" me!!
I overflow with gratefulness when I am getting my hands dirty
or visiting a nursery
or filling the trunk of the car with plants
or weeding (truly).
I overflow with thankfulness when gifting someone with cut flowers
or a bag of homegrown carrots
or sharing photos of blooms.
Or hosting a wedding in the garden!!!
Thank you, friend, for reminding me of this.
