Garden of Dreams

Spring is such a beautiful time of year.  It has been such a pleasure to bask in all the stunning flowering trees, in shades of pink, white, lavender and yellow.  Their flowers sprinkle the ground with nature’s confetti in celebration of the changing seasons.

Bold blooms that unfold from tiny buds, remind me that all growth starts from something small.  You plant the seed of an idea or dream, you nurture it, water it, give it light, all in hopes that it will grow. It is an act of loving something without any promise of reward.  You wait patiently as the foundation of roots are laid, deep below the earth, hidden from your sight.

To give a dream your all, day after day, month after month, year after year, not knowing when it will bloom is the ultimate surrender to the cycle of life and divine timing.  I’ve been tending the garden of my dreams for quite some time now and I can see the buds puncturing the earth, making their way to the glory of the sun.  Brilliant blooms are just around the corner!
