Sunday Dinner

“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life.


August 2, 2015 garden 037~

It turns what we have into enough, and more.

It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order,

confusion to clarity.


August 2, 2015 garden 072


It can turn a meal into a feast,

a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.

Gratitude makes sense of our past,

brings peace for today,

and creates a vision for tomorrow.”

  1. It feels like gardeners have more to be grateful for than most.

  2. farseems

    So agree with this. Gratitude is such a biiiig thing, it leaves one speechless, wordless, for its not enough to express the depth of gratitude we owe to every moment in our lives. Thank you for this beautiful reminder.

  3. I love seeing all your visitors! What is the butterfly on the lantana? I don’t recognize it.

  4. Very inspiring, WG. Thank you. 🙂
