I had a bit of a health crisis 6 months ago and as I lay in bed recovering from surgery I dreamt of sunflowers.
During my recovery I hobbled down to the garden one morning with determination and planted seeds - a whole packet full -
I watered and willed and hoped beyond hope.
(as mentioned in past posts, I had never been successful with seeds before)
One day, they started to grow.
I held my breath (secretly hoping), not really trusting the possibility..
They kept growing. (I wouldn't allow myself to look)
They started to form flowers (I allowed a little bit of possibility of reality to enter my heart).
I hurt my back and had to stay away from the garden awhile.
Then today, I let myself really SEE and FEEL the JOY (of hope mixed with possibilities mixed with reality)
And I let out a giant exhale and breathed in (and out and in ...)
Wishing your simple dreams coming true today....
