The glory of gardening: hands in the dirt, head in the sun, heart with nature. To nurture a garden is to feed not just on the body, but the soul.” – Alfred Austin
When I am working in my garden, all is well with my soul. Every time I see my garden, I feel a sense of pride and gratitude. It’s so rewarding watching the little seedlings sprout and progress into the mature plants that will provide me with fresh vegetables throughout the summer. I know there are challenges to come, those nasty little bugs that will try to take over the zucchini plants, the weeds that will try to choke out my tomatoes. I know too, though, that as in summers past, I will persevere and will overcome the challenges and enjoy the pleasure that comes in eating a salad topped with my very own cucumbers, tomatoes and radishes!
Find that thing for you that brings you contentment and take some time out today to do it! 🙂
