It is a real blessing in life to accept the things about one’s personality that are distinctly yours.
If I hadn’t accepted the fact that I love to explore and will go places (even alone), then I never would have found
The Tree of Life Nursery.
This nursery is known by many, but it calls to me for three key reasons:
* the plants are healthy
*1/2 gallon plants are $3.50 and gallon sized plants are $7.00
*very little English is spoken
Even when it is 99 degrees outside, I enjoy visiting this nursery with my yard clothes on, my baseball cap and sunglasses on (preferably Ray Ban aviators) and the willingness to have the back end of my Tahoe covered in leaves, potting soil, and red mulch.
I am getting ready to plant something.
I also get to sing along with the radio, dancing in my mind and giggling about my receipt.
My hope for you this Sunday afternoon is that you too have a Tree of Life (or a junk store, or a chapel, or a family member’s house, or a favorite route home that makes you feel empowered too.

Postscript: While writing this post, my two grandsons were wrestling at my feet, trying to get each other’s books that I bought them at Half Priced Books in Humble.
We drove there yesterday morning to have pancakes at the Humble Cafe.
I had to order them each an extra pancake, they were so good.
