Gardens

“To plant a garden is to believe in tomorrow.” ~Audrey Hepburn*

This applies to all gardens, the literal ones and the metaphorical, symbolic ones.  It is to infuse our dreams for the future with faith.  Faith is the doorway to the realization of possibilities and potentials.

What many of my readers don’t know is that I raise a very special son.  He has brain injuries that have had a profound effect on him.  Several years ago we weren’t even sure we could continue to provide for his special needs in our home.  That’s when together, he and I wrote a letter from his future self.  In that letter, he was the person he dreamed of being, and all his needs were provided for throughout his childhood, in the nurturing safety and stability of our home.

Every night we read that letter together, until one day we no longer needed it.  The seeds we planted had come to fruition.  We believed, and our faith moved mountains. 

As we approach Spring, happy gardening everyone … whether you plant seeds in the earth or seeds in your consciousness, your heart enduringly sings of a belief in tomorrow.
