Miracle Gro


It’s that extra juice made famous by the Scotts Company. We give it to our plants, soil and lawn waiting and hoping for miracles to grow. So a quick reminder: if you did bring your indoor plants outside during the warm weather months or you are trying to nurture herbs like Rosemary and Basil indoors this wintertime, a shot of extra fertilizer is helpful right about now. Extra care for your plants though is an ongoing treatment, not a one-shot deal, which segues right into the plant/life message of the day.

As Hugh Elliot pointed out, “Miracles: You do not have to look for them. They are there, 24-7, beaming like radio waves all around you. Put up the antenna, turn up the volume - snap... crackle... this just in, every person you talk to is a chance to change the world.” So as I wait for a simple miracle that someday soon our new gas boiler system might do what it is supposed to do – give us hot water, a shower, and oh yeah, that thing called heat. But then life often gives us back-up plans including friends and family that take the edge off these situations. And it makes you realize how it’s the simple things we take for granted every day. So if you are experiencing a set-back, look around and check out this season of miracles. As Fannie Flagg once said, “Don't give up before the miracle happens.”
