Charming Gardeners

"Let us be grateful to people who make us happy;
they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom."
- Marcel Proust

It is only Tuesday, and this week I have already had the good fortune of beautiful and caring exchanges with ones who are indeed "charming gardeners" who "make my soul blossom"... how blessed am I! Wishing blessings in return to my charming gardeners... I am so grateful!

Thank you for your visit today... may you experience the joy and grace of this season.

When I was growing up I cherished most my Gramma in her Wellington's pushing her wheelbarrow throughout her gardens. I was blessed by her calm grace as she watched me blossom. I remember most her words of wisdom and her free spirit on the land she called" home". Most wondered why she was tied to her pleasures, I was envious of her desire to not care what others thought. Today I know her choices were made freely, and I too can walk in her Wellington's and be free. Walk with me?

About Me

My photo
I have always been inspired by my Grandfather's particular generosity and encouragement, along with his love for others and nature. His spirit lives on, and the influence is quietly with me as I write and share. This is my small offering that I pray will bless others and allow them to become Simply Inspired. warmly, karen -xok.
Each day provides its own gifts.
