My garden has been bare all year.
I kept meaning to plant something, but kept putting it off. It just hasn’t been on the top of my priority list. I didn’t even plant any pots of flowers on the porch (except I am nurturing a little citronella plant that was given to me by my neighbors).
And seeing that it’s June, I had resigned myself that I just wouldn’t have a garden this year. But then last weekend I went to my parents’ house, and my mom offered me a bushel of mint leaves from her overflowing garden. I gladly took it 🙂
Seeing green again in my yard gives me hope…It just reminds me that even when I’m busy or overwhelmed or tired, I can make the choice to keep showing up. I read this post today: Keep showing up, keep choosing to be grateful, keep choosing life.
It’s in these small moments every day of choosing life that life truly springs up again.
