Read this quote, (from Mom's book of daily meditations), while Animal Crackers In My Soup, a song made famous by Shirley Temple, came on the swinging juke box in my head. Shirley Temple? Honestly, who's next? Liberace?
To live wholeheartedly, yet to detach ourselves from the outcomes of our actions is the key to serenity.
Later, while tearing through the garden (trying to get Shirley out of my head), I spotted this purple morning glory blooming, all by herself, out of the bricks.
Note to self: See? You can grow anywhere.
(even if you feel weird or afraid sometimes.)
