Woke up this morning a new fresh person. Today is a new day. It’s a calm day. I’m not the same person I was yesterday and nothing is quite as it seems. It is all an illusion anyway.
Miracle: Make something out of nothing. Like a blog post!
Miracle: Faith! It is all good.
I got the fresh cup of blog copy brewed and my garden has rain while family and friends are busy running back and forth inventing new imaginative games.
Picture deep green garden, flowers on the well, fluffy white clouds in a fresh blue sky. White butterfly. It is 11:11a for all you kind numerologists folk reading.
I sit and look out the window, look at the keys, hear my key strokes tapping. It’s a dream come true to me actually. I remember years back when looking for a place to live, baby in the tummy, and I told my husband I wanted a garden with a kids’ pool and he laughed. How we laugh now.
We get a lot of compliments on our garden because it is a group project although the lines are not always clean cut.
The plants are showing signs or regrowth. God is amazing. Colors are various shades of greens, browns and burnt rust. The trees that shall be here long after us.
I like to say some things just grow out of nothing — like friendships, children, diamonds, songs, and ideas. Or? What about you?
I’ve also got the dark violet berries nearly dripping off the vines. Unbelievably delish to pop into your mouths. Move over vitamins in jars, you’ve been replaced. The kids ask Can we pick the tomatoes?, Oh, yes, by all means.
What do you think about me going out and collecting some of these berries and figuring out how to make jam out of them? I can ask my neighbor who I adore, shout her out a prayer she isn’t feeling so good these days. She is well taken after!
You kind folk who follow my blog know that after dinner at sunset I like to go for a nice country walk. Magic.
I am not a HUGE peach fan so I don’t know what to do with the couple dozen peaches in my fridge. Any ideas? Being on a permanent diet so nothing with sugar, please. Did you know that you can put peaches in the freezer?
Honey, yes, I would be happy to have a slice of a honey peach cobbler pie, thank you!
It is all good, just remember that. It is all here for you to enjoy so make sure you enjoy the journey. You can do this by dedicating a bit of time every day to things that make you happy, whether it is writing, singing, walking or playing an instrument. The list is endless. You are a creative person!
It makes me laugh when I say to people of course you can draw and write and share! They seem to forget we all have that ability, but of course, you can pick up the pencil and start fresh.
As with all things, writing, playing basketball, whatever it is, it is a skill and each skill can be mastered through repetition.
You’ve all been just a wonderful audience to talk with.
For the time being, I’ll be out in the garden watching the boys play on this glorious day.
