The other day my anxiety kicked in for some reason and I was so close to checking myself into the E.R. but I decided not to run from it. I needed to find something to do to be busy rather than just sitting around thinking about it and the sheer fact that I thought I was dying. So, I grabbed some clippers and a garbage bag and went out to the back yard. I worked and worked until I had seven bags of dead trimmings. As I was working around the pool area the words from, The Secret Garden came to me.
"Might I," quavered Mary, "might I have a bit of earth?"
That's not exactly how I rememberd it. I had to look it up. I did remember her saying "bit of earth" thinking that everyone needed some. As I was finishing up the clippings, I was so grateful for my very own bit of earth and how it helped me that day.
While looking up this quote, I recognized many favorite scenes from two amazing books, now movies. The Secret Garden and A Little Princess. Oh, how I do need a girls night out with my nieces. A tea party perhaps followed by feel good movies. I'll get on that. :)
Going up in my girls' room today? These.
