The past few days I have been waking up thinking about planting flowers and shrubs. It is an activity that has nothing to do with hospitals, medications, or appointments. Qavah has been asking about planting a garden with tomatoes, and cucumbers. Maybe this is our summer to try something like that. It has been years since I canned my own tomatoes. On these quiet days, it seems like anything is possible. I'm sitting here smiling just thinking about it.
