seeds to nurture

The moments of each day hold within them seeds for our fertile hearts and minds. One by one they drop and as we think and dream and have our Being, we choose which seeds to nurture and which not. They're all in there....fear and love, disillusionment, joy, sadness, peace. All naturally occurring and therefore to be acknowledged, but we have a choice of which ones we wish to water and tend to. We can't choose which seeds might fall, but we can choose what thrives.

The past few days have been a little tough for me. Nothing has happened really, I've just been in a funk. Sad. Nothing I want to spend time "growing," that's for sure. This morning I went out to the garden, early. Everything was misty and still and beautiful. The first poppy in the wildflower garden has popped. It's delicate and glorious. I look at it and I am awed. I am smiling. I am joyful. Those are the seeds I want to water. It is a few hours later and I still have a smile on my face. I'm thankful for it.

Good vibes to your glorious seeds and blessings to you as you move through the moments of your day. I wish you smiles. I wish you awe. I wish you joy.

It is beautiful to see your smiling face again. I'm glad the garden brought you back.
