R is for Rest
Me, alone. Life after loss.
Take rest; a field that has rested gives a bountiful crop. ~ Ovid
Now that I'm retired, I should rest as needed, right? And I do, but I feel sort of guilty. Don't know why. Of all the quotes I have found for this Challenge, the one above is the one I need to take to heart.
How I loved our garden........
I loved seeing that garden. That quote is a perfect one. HUGS BReplyDelete
your garden looks wonderful. i need a quote for the opposite of yours. i need one that will kick my butt and sayReplyDelete
stop resting... do something.
Maybe a smaller version of this lovely garden, Inger, one that you can handle.ReplyDelete
Meditate/rest on it today and see what you come up with.
I do love that quote.ReplyDelete
That was a lovely garden. I would suppose I rest - I don't get a thing done around here.ReplyDelete
You will know when it is time to nurture your garden again.ReplyDelete
Good morning Inger!ReplyDelete
What a beautiful and so green your garden!
I like the quote, very true.
Wishing you a lovely day and week!
Farmers let their fields go fallow for a season after long years of use. If even dirt needs a rest, how much more so do our weary hearts?ReplyDelete
Many of us just don't get enough rest.ReplyDelete
I am similar - i can rest - i find it easy but I always or most of the time, feel like i should be "doing" instead of resting.
Perfect quote for you--& many others!!ReplyDelete
Love the quote! Since I have been alone I seem to make more time to rest than I used to. In fact, resting is something I spend a lot of time doing. Beautiful garden!ReplyDelete
What? No weeds in your garden?ReplyDelete
Start with something small and manageable; plant something sure to thrive that you love. Let it grow from there. Don't bite off too much at first. Then you'll lose the restorative benefits of work in the garden.ReplyDelete
Perfect quote and perfect picture. Rest is necessary to replenish mind and body. Be sure to make time for it.ReplyDelete
great quote, and pictureReplyDelete
rain and rest can both be restorative.ReplyDelete
Hi Inger - love the quote and today the 22nd is Earth Day according to the Oracle that is Google! Errol was certainly very good with his green fingers ... your garden looks quite amazing ... so green and giving ... I'm sure it'll be therapeutic to start a patch up again ... with some of the easier crops ... Have a peaceful day ... with hugs - HilaryReplyDelete
