You can sit pretty today. Relax and enjoy the explosion of your garden as it springs up in abundance. Good news from across the water will come with blessings of success and achievement. So sit back and smile. You’ve worked for it. But don’t forget the little things on your plate today that still need to be done.
Remember last year in the fall when you worked so hard to prepare you garden for spring planting? Remember all the work you did earlier this spring to plant your new seeds and nurture your dreams, ambitions and new plans for the year? Take a moment today to look at how far you’ve come. Look over ALL the little successes you’ve had and all the hard work you’ve done to set the foundation for everything in your life to move forward for the better. You’ve come a long way baby – and if you take a little time to notice, things are not only changing, they’re changing for the better! Enjoy it and for today you can sit with pride and confidence in the work you’ve done and blossoms that are opening in your world!
