When a morning changes direction

It is not often that I 'cross-post' from one of my blogs to another. I figure you all know how to navigate between them if/as you are interested in doing so. However, this morning I make an exception to my usual style of 'non-pushiness' because the story I just posted on my least active blog (mea culpa!) is just too inspirational to get lost there. 

Thus, I invite you all to read the new post I just put up on my CancerVictoryGardens blog this morning (New Cancer Victory Garden! January 16, 2012).  I had other things I had planned to do this morning, but after receiving this beautiful and inspirational story from a young woman who found her way to that blog, I just had to first focus on sharing her story with the world and you.

This young cancer survivor's story embodies everything I hoped to accomplish with my CancerVictoryGardens blog. In my note back to her, I asked her to thank her mother who gave her the packet of seeds with the insight of helping her daughter focus on something besides cancer, something of the future, something that would not happen without her daughter's help and hope.

I am reminded of one of my all-time favorite quotes, which I am sure I have used in the past on this blog, too:

"Life begins the day you plant a garden" ~~ Chinese Proverb

Truer words have not been spoken. :-)

Cultivate your life - you are what you grow, inch by inch, row by row!
