Crowded Day?

Arranging a bowl of flowers in the morning

Can give a sense of quiet in a crowded day –

Like writing a poem or saying a prayer.

-Anne Morrow Lindberg

Surrounded by packing boxes in all different states of neediness, I walked out on them this morning. There is more beauty happening outside than I can keep up with. Not that my flower gardens are beautiful this year. They aren’t really. Because of the upcoming move, I didn’t go to any nurseries this spring, I’m behind in weed pulling and there has been no filling in with colorful annuals. But still, it is a thing of beauty to me and I felt like it was passing me by. I had to stop and lose myself in just a bit of it. That’s all it took. Restorative healing is so potent in the garden.

So, I brought some of it inside.

What do you find restorative in a crowded day?
