Saturday, 27 May 2006 - Blank canvas

Dear God:

Today, I am thankful for a blank "canvas" on which to plant a garden.

It's not what you look at that matters, it's what you see. ~ Henry David Thoreau

The photo shows part of the backyard - the land that challenges me to plant and grow a garden. After looking at the area, another person might give up and hire a professional to landscape the area.

But, not me.

In my mind's eye, I see this arid parcel transformed into a bit of Colorado paradise - my own piece of earth alive with shrubs, flowers, birds and butterflies. It will take lots of work, but I'm up for it.

Lucky me. The job is mine.

For this blessing, I am grateful.
