to pull out weeds and let my mind wander.

to feel dirt between my fingers.

to carefully move worms out of harms way.

to hold the harvest of a friend’s garden that overflows from my hands.


to know that we can help one another.

to trust that even though Sharon is sick right now and can’t enjoy the sweetness of this fruit, this season will pass.

to believe in something outside of myself.

to pray and to surrender.

to not question or over-analyze diseases like cancer.

to live in the present.
