Businesses plant gardens between buildings. The town ponders what should be their town flower! Rose arbors appear in yards.
These simple pleasures generally are out of sync with the hurried and frenzied life presented all around us. But, they enhance the lives of those who are enjoying the simple pleasures and of those who are rushing around - whether they realize it or not.
How can I be a refreshment to my community? When I go for a walk - sometimes, there is a certain yard or home that will stand out as inviting or charming - is my home one of those that generates a refreshment in others who walk or drive by? This can be as simple as keeping all the trash picked up, toys put away and weeds kept to a minimum. (Guess I better add "Tidy Porch" to my list of things to do today!)
What can I do to be a refreshment to my community? I'm still pondering this and would love to hear your ideas!
