One of the things my husband and I are learning to do better is sharing – time, things, chores, money, food.  And now, even the gardening.

I’m noticing that we garden together well.  He’s learning what plants not to step on, weed out or accidentally break.  And he seems to be enjoying playing in the greenery.  It’s a different experience to have him out there with me, and it is providing a lovely perk.  We seem to be able to talk about some important, although not necessarily pleasant topics – like finances – quite well when we’re working in the garden.  Difficult subjects don’t end up being such a big deal when we have some lovely peas, radishes or asparagus to distract us a bit in between the tougher topics.

I like that easy way of being together even through the otherwise challenging times we’re facing financially, like so many others these days.  Our bank account may be weaker than usual, but the bounty of our garden and the helpful dialogue it promotes between us are booming.  We have much to be grateful for, and we’re learning to be together in knew ways.  Thank You God.

Affirmation for the Day – ” I am learning more about how to share.”

Remember to say the affirmation at least 3 times whenever you remember it, preferably in front of a mirror.
