Tomorrow’s Garden

An unknown author once stated, “Gardening is a way of showing that you believe in tomorrow.” As we near the winter solstice on December 21st, we often forget what is happening in the surrounding landscape. It is easy to forget our gardens that offer us a flush of hope. It’s a gardeners’ sixth sense that assures them of one thing. Some, if not most of what we planted, though it may wither down to the bare bones of the earth, shall find its rebirth come spring.

We each state our own personal reasons for why we garden. There’s a mile long list for many but the common thread is a symbiotic connection to the earth. It’s something all garden lovers share. It is proven to us time and time again. It’s this belief that there is a tomorrow; that what we planted last season comes back to us in the early months of spring. 

On this 24th day of 26 days of kindness, we honor Mary Sherlach. She enjoyed spending time with her family, gardening, reading and going to the theater. What an essential message, a belief in tomorrow to send with your acts of kindness today to honor Mary’s love of gardening.  Hope is often that little extra gift someone might need. It’s not money or lavish presents but that lift for today to believe in tomorrow.

The last of these 26 days of kindness are nearing this Saturday though an extension is planned for December 15th. There will be one extra day of kindness to honor the survivors, teachers, first responders, friends and family of Newtown, CT. Remember it’s not about money or lavish presents but that lift for today to believe in tomorrow. As always, the event and FB page to take part in the acts of kindness.
