Top 10: Items to Plant in Our Garden
We've had quite a bit of snow this year, but I know that eventually spring will come. I do love the snow and would, in fact, take more (some people call me sick, but I'm OK with that because I*LOVE*SNOW!). However, Peter pointed out the other day that it was time to get the seeds started in the basement, and that, like the snow that keeps covering the ground, made my heart skip a beat. It made me think about warm spring days and cotton skirts and flip-flops and sun hats and tall glasses of iced tea. It also brought to mind the taste of a ripe tomato - still warm from the sun, and cucumbers that you could tell were ready to be picked because you could smell them as you walked through the garden. Yes spring, I am ready.
C.S. Lewis once said, “You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream." Dream BIG. After going "there and back again," The Hubs & I have created a home that is full of books, stimulating conversation, and the laughter of our five kids. We have been the recipients of Amazing Grace, and our life goals can be summed up in four words: Love God, love people.
