a view from my garden.....

Brown-Eyed Susans

Pink Coneflower


Creeping Mint


Lambs' Ear

every morning I take a stroll through my herb gardens...
and every morning i am pleasantly suprised
to find subtle yet striking changes that have happened overnight.

...what was a tender bud yesterday, has blossomed into a beautiful flowerhead,
or what was once verdant and green, has now shriveled and is
yielding to make room for yet more new growth...
...so is life.

we sometimes can't see the subtle changes happening, but they're there, nonetheless.
family members and friends change for better or worse,...
babies are born, others in our lives...die.
accepting change is something that makes us unique as an intelligent species...
being able to adapt to changing circumstances in our lives
enrich us and make us whole.
make us passionate.
make us fallable.
make us human.
if changes did not occur, the whole 'garden' that we are planted in
would become stagnant, and eventually die...
embrace change, relish it and don't concern yourself with how it will affect you.
keep positive and things will turn out ok.
they always do...
wishing for you the joys of positive change in your lives!!!
