We can be gardeners of plants – and of each person in our lives. Why not reach out to nurture, cultivate, admire and enjoy the beautiful results, and ponder the occasional disasters? Whether they are thriving, subsisting, or barely surviving, they are individuals with hopes of growing and eventually blooming. Some of them may never flower or bear fruit, but our minimal support can assist them in their process of life. We can find fulfillment and great intrinsic rewards in our quiet growing of plants and people.
