Thursday Thoughts

I’m doing my best to be mindful about how I’m living: to be kind and patient, and not to impose bad mood on somebody else. Being mindful is as good a way to be spiritual as anything else.

–Deirdre O’Kane

Thursday Thoughts

Franklin’s illness gave him strength and courage he had not had before. He had to think out the fundamentals of living and learn the greatest of all lessons…Infinite patience and never-ending persistence.

–Eleanor Roosevelt

The first time I read this quote, was our first visit to the Franklin Roosevelt Memorial in Washington DC. This visit was not long after I’d been diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, and this quote has resonated with me ever since; maybe now more than ever.

First Tomato Harvest

I can’t even tell you how loud I squealed last night when I went out to my garden and found these:

Aren’t they fabulous?

My first 100% organic tomato harvest, given lots of TLC. It is such a rewarding feeling to know that Seth and I get to enjoy these, even more so knowing where they came from and what went into producing them.

I would be remiss if I didn’t thank Seth again for helping me continuously stake these seven foot monster tomato plants, as we wouldn’t have any if it weren’t for that 🙂 Also, my mom, for continually reminding me that patience is a vital part of gardening!
