…they are bright and beautiful blessings. This is another scene from my outdoor office. The lemons remind me that setbacks can be tart and bitter, but when combined with self-reflection and gratitude can become an exquisite nectar of growth, wisdom, and experience.
I'm awed by the beauty of nature and the power of love and gratitude. Some of my favorite sensory experiences include waves crashing on rocky shores, waterways in ancient redwood and fern-filled forests, and rain. My wife and I have been married since 1979. We have 3 adult children and 5 grandchildren. I manage a wealth management firm that I founded in 2003. My Beloved is a Special Education teacher for Kindergartners and First Graders. I'm a published author of approximately 60 books in a variety of genres for grownups and children.
a great way to look at things and i so wish i had lemons growing outside )
Thank you Beth. It is likely you have things growing near that I’d like to have around me too.
My parents use to have a lemon tree
It must be awesome to have lemons growing outside your window, Russ! 🙂 I so want to live somewhere like that!
Thank you for your comment, Heather. I’ll bet there are things near your that I’d love have be outside my window.
Wow! Lemons! And I really like the way you think. Great post, Russ! ❤
