I am posting via my phone in my backyard so please overlook any errors. After three solid weeks of running at a planned but breakneck speed, I can go out into the Southern Spring sun and do something that we do best and plant my garden.
Three weeks ago I planted 8 tomato, 12 sweet potato, 2 pepper, 3 basil and 3 cilantro plants, Then I walked away. I have longingly stood in the kitchen as I prepped meals, signed school papers and planned our schedules and as I headed out the door and watched my garden grow.
Finally, a gap in the schedule as the school year winds down! I have worked two hours solid and have sat down in the grass before round two.
With each turn of the hoe and with each armful of straw and each sneeze from tbe grass and trees, I have given thanks for this day and the Earth which nourishes us.
Now comes the sunflowers and okra and squash and more!
Give thanks. Be glad. Walk in the sun!
I’m Dana Croy and I am a modern day mama. Balancing family and work is not always easy (not to mention a little self-care). Though being Mama to two fantastic kiddos is a huge part of my life, that was not always the case. I wear many other hats and invite to sit down and find harmony with me.
