Tending to Matters at Hand

So, how are things when you get back home from a week away?

I discovered this morning that my garden needs tending.  No worries.  I just got back in and started to work.

I didn’t like how I felt.  Normally the garden is a wonderful experience for me in the morning.  It felt foreign this morning, like I didn’t understand it.  Nevertheless, I kept pulling.  And pulling.  And pulling.

I’m not caught up yet, but it’s getting there.  And it will.

How’s your garden?

A little neglected?  No worries.  You can go there now.  Nobody is judging you for the weeds you see before your eyes.  You can love and accept them for they are part of you right now.  And at some point they may have served a purpose, but right now, when the dew is on your roses, you can see things differently.  And as you take a deep breath, you know what needs to be in your garden right now, and the parts that just don’t serve you or anyone else.  And you may find your hands just gently beginning the work that needs to be done, as you follow them.  You might want to focus on the thought of “oh, my goodness, there are so many weeds, I don’t even know where to start.”  All you need to worry about is the one that is near your hand right now.  And you know what to do, even if you think you don’t.

And so you take a deep breath…and begin.  Again.

Remember that every day is a resurrection for you.

(Venus, this one is for you…)

Be well, and at peace,
