30 day Gratitude Challenge...today I am grateful for sun, warmth and gardening!! It's so funny to say that I'm grateful for this. Not the sun and warmth...I'm always grateful for those two things. They make my soul happy! But gardening...gardening always seems like a funny thing to be grateful for to me.
I love gardening now, as an adult. When I was kid however, my brother and I were tasked with weeding a large are that felt like it was the size of a football field (it was large, but not quite that large) every summer for 3 or 4 years. I got so sick of weeding the same area, always being told that we were going to plant grass, only to be tasked the next summer with weeding the same damn area! After the third year, I swore that when I grew up and bought my own house, the whole damn yard was going to be concrete so there wouldn't be any weeding to do...ever!! LOL!!! Well, here I am...an adult! And what do I have? Definitely not concrete. I have a plethora of landscaping that requires constant upkeep and a ton of weeding. But interestingly enough, I love it. Not the weeding so much, I still hate that part, but I love being able to step out of the house and relax in the midst of natural beauty.
So as funny as it sounds, even today, I am so very grateful for gardening weather and all the new growth that spring brings with it.
