I picked cucumbers this morning.
One of the hardest things for me, is I grew up in the house next door. It was my parents house that they loved and worked so hard on it. I have to live next door and watch renters come in and just tear the heck out of it. Sometimes when I am out in the garden, I think to myself, I just can't take this anymore. I need to move. Last night I was ready to call the realtor. The last firework mortar went off at 2:30 A.M. They were so big that the floor would vibrate. Since Ron has to be up at 4:30 it makes for a really hard start to the day.
But like everything. It always looks pretty in the morning. Life is back to its normal routine. I have lovely cucumbers and tomatoes to pick. I wandered around and counted my blessings. I prayed for God to be in me not a different set of circumstances. To get my peace and accept that for now, this is where I am to be.
The sunflowers are opening and it does make me happy to go out to the garden and see all of the smiling faces.
I hope you have a lovely day.
I wish you blessings upon blessings and hope you have a wonderful restful day.
