December 10 – Wisdom Wisdom. What was the wisest decision you made this year, and how did it play out?
Wisdom - The wisest decision I made in 2010 would be enlarging my garden. I feel the extra space added not only fresh vegetables for our table, canned vegetables for our pantry, huge savings on our grocery bill, but also an emotional enhancer for the mind and body.
All five senses were satisfied during the summer as I tended my garden. My body was physically worked, some days exercised and stretched beyond the limit. Tired muscles would drop into bed at night, and sleeping once again became a habit, unlike the restless nights I have encountered since the injury which changed my life.
I have always been a morning person. I love watching the sun rise and feeling the cool dawn slowly warm as the morning sun heats up the day. All the while crawling around in fresh tilled dirt, tending tender plants and harvesting fresh vegetables to take home for canning and adding to our menu for dinner every night. I miss my garden during this black and white season we call winter.
