Today’s Treasure

Yesterday morning, I strolled my back garden to greet every plant, gaze at every flower, & anticipate every bud.  There were two open blossoms on my poppy plant when I began mowing the grass & four by the time I finished mowing 45 minutes later.  That quickly, buds with potential became fully formed flowers, petals open to embrace the sunlight & warm breeze.

Opening to greet the new day!

Nature is my all-time favorite teacher, gently reminding me of the impermanence of everything.  “Be present”, She whispers, “Immerse your Self fully in each precious moment.  And know that if you are going through a challenging time, it will pass.  Change, as you know my Dear, is inevitable.”

So, this morning, I began the day with a mindful walk through the garden, savoring what IS & grateful that I’m right HERE, right NOW.  I can’t mourn yesterday’s spent blossoms because my tears would blind me to today’s magnificent beauty.

    • Thanks, College Commuter 🙂 I’m sending best wishes & all things positive as you juggle caring for your mom, studying, & commuting. I hope you take the time to care for your Self, too.

      • Thank you for your kind words. 🙂 I’m trying to do the best I can but I feel I need more time for myself. Fortunately, college will be finished soon for the summer vacation and then I’ll have time to breathe!
