I was worried my plants wouldn't make it through the wind and the rain, but they awoke with a renewed freshness after the storm. This little wood violet was protected by it's leaves.
Can you smell the sweet basil?
I took time to smell them this morning and I plan to enjoy my garden and everything around me with a renewed freshness.
I lost a good friend, unexpectedly this week. The sadness I am feeling is overwhelming with empathy for her family members and our friends. We have been friends since Middle School. She was a strong vibrant woman who gave so much to everyone including her family, her church, and her community. I am proud to say, she was my friend. This world has lost a wonderful woman too early in life - she was only 53.
This is my friend, Mary Jo!
So in closing today, I would like to say something I say quite often: Take time to play, take time to enjoy the moments of your life, and most importantly take time to be with the ones you love...
