Every thought is a seed. If you plant crab apples, don't count on harvesting Golden Delicious. ~Bill Meyer

When I visited my garden this morning, something blue caught my eye. On closer inspection, I discovered this delightful morning glory peaking out from a mass of tangled vines.

I stood amazed wondering where it had come from, and then I remembered. Early in the year, I had planted morning glory seeds along the fence. When they didn't germinate at the expected time, I planted other flowers in their place. It was the last I thought about those morning glories.

Forgetting about what I had sown didn't stop it from manifesting. Once set in motion, the seeds we sow will grow whether we remember them or not. Fortunately for me my seeds were good and positive and brought forth glorious fruit to please the eye and soothe soul.

Be conscious of the seeds you sow, for they will take root and grow.

Today, I am grateful for the vibrant morning glory that convinces me that I will reap what I sow. I am grateful for a clear sound mind that is capable of visualizing all that is good and just in the world. I am grateful for laughter and tears that cleanse the soul. I am grateful for family and friends who inspire me to be my best.

And, I am grateful for you, dear reader, as you stop to share your day. May you be ever conscious of what you sow and may the harvest be bountiful.
