Monday, 01 September 2008 - Common ground

Dear God:

Today, I am thankful for common ground.

You don't have a garden just for yourself. You have it to share. ~Augusta Carter

When you have a garden, you also have a conversation topic, information to share, questions to ask, complaints to register, aspirations and dreams to ponder. Nearly everyone listens - at least for a little while - when one speaks of gardens and gardening and homegrown tomatoes. Strangers nod in silent agreement, friends commiserate, family members try to understand.

For this blessing, I am grateful.
