    1. End of year reflections are so important. I too worked mostly in-person this year and soon can look forward to next year full of smiles.

      I love your quote on your blog – Your biggest commitment must always be to yourself! I LOVE THAT! I always have summer projects centered on school. This year my summer project is ME!

    2. What beautiful recollections. And, I love the reminder that this year took its toil on everyone … and there’s no room for guilt. Thanks.


    1. Love that peony, Nanc! So beautiful! – The end quote really bolsters me – He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit he prunes[a] so that it will be even more fruitful— John 15:2 –


    1. What wonderful memories. Love this: As I walk through my gardens, I realize they hold a bouquet of memories – a life in flowers that is still growing. – This idea of a life in flowers!

  1. Terje – so sorry for your and your husband’s loss. Such a powerful piece. You touched my heart. God bless your mother-in-law. I imagine heaven filled with flowers.
