My Garden

By C. LaRene Hall

Many times, I’ve heard the saying, Life is like a garden – we reap what we sow. This year has been one of those years. My husband had to plant the vegetables twice because of all the strange weather we’ve had. Wouldn’t it be great if we could just replant life, the same way we do our gardens?

We can replant the life of our characters and make things turn out the way we want. We just have to be careful that it seems realistic. Our characters need to learn something, the same as each of us learns life’s lessons.

Seeds planted in my youth bloomed bright and full. My parents did a good job teaching me. Although I didn’t always listen every time, some of the things they taught stuck. I have found that in the early afternoon of my life, I have reaped many fruits of my life’s harvest, and I raised a bumper crop. It’s good to look around and see the full circle of color.
