As I sit here with a glass of wine, I reflect on my life with a smile on my face and tears in my eyes. A roller coaster ride only begins to explain my moods and emotions lately. Over the past several months, the number of goodbyes and welcome homes have been endless and they begin to wear on a heart...my heart. After a good cry and conversation with my wonderful husband, I always seem to feel worlds better. Communication in all forms, words, hugs, kisses, tones, letters, is a strength of ours...thank God! It is through all the times apart that we have learned to communicate verbally and through written words, but Lord only knows just how much I cannot wait until our face to face communication outweighs our distance communication. Military life is rough, but for your soulmate, anything is worth it and I sure have my soulmate!
Sunshine puts a smile on my face and yard work makes me feel accomplished, so what better to do on a duty day when I am down and out then get outside and work in the gardens!
Our little pepper plant that is growing like a stud in an old paint can of my daddy's.
My little seedlings are starting to really grow! The chives are struggling a bit, but I'm sure they will start growing like weeds anytime now! The acron square are doing great though! There is such a beauty in watching handplanted seedlings grow into blossoming plants! I am such my father's daugher! Thank you daddy for giving me your green thumb and your love of gardening! I only hope to achieve your level of perfection and creativity!
