Count Your Blessings
I filmed this video before the tragedy in Afghanistan was reported by the news media (It was a busy morning on our block, as you can tell by all the background noise.) I grieve for the families who lost loved ones. And I pray for healing -- for the ones left behind, for the souls in Afghanistan, for our nation, and for ourselves.
And yet, here I am in my garden.
And I think I will follow my own advice. To calm the soul, the garden is always a good place to be. I will enjoy the fruits of my labor. Take a deep breath. And definitely count my blessings.
I hope you will too.
