So here in beautiful Queensland, we have had some much needed rain. As far as the eye can see there is a beautiful green to the land that hasn’t been seen for some time. The gardens are growing and happy. At least for now they do not need to want for moisture. They can grow and flourish without the stress and struggles.
There is something about this lush green land. It gives a sense of serenity and calm. An inner peace that just seems to soothe the soul. I love my time in the garden on any day, but it’s different when everything is so lush and green. It’s beauty takes my breath away. The butterflies hover, the bees are buzzing, the bird song seems louder and happier. It seems that it is not just me that appreciates the surroundings after a good rain.
Those quiet moments in the garden seem to recharge my energy levels. They bring hope for the future. They make everything seem possible as though our thought process while working in this serene environment suddenly make the world a much brighter amazing space to be in. It is safe to dreams the big dreams.
Today, I give thanks and gratitude for the recent rains, the new abundance of life around me and for my ability to see hope and promise in all that I see.
There’s a bee in my garden, that flies by me,
Buzzing and singing a great melody.
Bringing the sunshine to brighten my day,
Teaching me lessons along the way.
