My Gratitude Garden
Because I’ve been on the road so much, my friend—feng shui expert Terah Kathryn Collins has been spending time at my home—house-sitting and taking care of my garden. She’s neat and tidy and this makes her an ideal person to stay there.
Before I left, Terah said she’d like to do some things with my garden and had a couple of ideas. And I said, “Anything! Anything you want to do is fine.” I trust Terah and I know that she is a person who creates beauty.
I told her about my challenges: If I buy a plant for this garden, I only buy one. You can get a little six-pack of plants, but I buy only one. I plant it and then wait until the next morning to see if it’s alive. I have all of these animals that eat. I don’t want them to eat six, but they can eat one! If they don’t eat it or aren’t interested in it, then I know I can bring more plants in.
Life loves me! Terah was at my house for two weeks and she has transformed my garden. It is so gorgeous! When I saw it, I just wanted to cry because it was the garden I had wanted since I first moved here. But I didn’t know how to do it. I’m not a garden designer. That is not my talent. I’d love to be, but I’m not.
My new garden is just exquisite. I love you, Terah.
Let’s affirm: I am deeply grateful for everything that has been given to me.
