Within this space......

 It has been a difficult day, I always find emotional issues draining.    When we love someone we do what we can to make their life better.....we go the extra mile to bring a smile, give a gentle hug when we know that is all they need, take them out for a drive to see the wild flowers, a picnic in the car, their aching body does not allow them to walk far these days.   Most of the time I cope but today I felt so very weary of the constant tugging  at my heart strings.    Coming home is my salvation, before me the garden that I love, the patch of earth I have worked for 13 years.  
Just one hour, that is all it took, one hour of weeding, watching the bees and birds and my spirit lifted.    Cheryl-you must take time to smell the flowers...............

  1. My heart goes out to you, Cheryl. I know how difficult it must be, but I know you must be making her day a little brighter with your thoughtfulness. Dealing with some family issues here, too--I could use some garden therapy as well. Love to see your "dancing daffodils"!

  3. Oh so sorry you had a difficult day. I'm so glad you have the garden, but most especially that you have the willingness to refresh yourself. Some people are not smart enough to stop and smell. Love the daffodils.

    1. I am sorry to hear that Grace. I have been following the weather in the States.....it has been grim.

      I hope the daffe brought a smile and that soon you will be looking at your own.
