Gardeners Who Make Our Souls Blossom

“Let us be grateful to people who make us happy.

They are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.”

– Marcel Proust –

I hope you get to spend Thanksgiving with people who make you happy. Take a few moments to still yourself, allow peace to settle over you, and let your soul blossom with gratitude. It’s rich heart-soil, especially for nurturing calm.

I’m grateful for you, thankful that you share my hope of nourishing peace, cultivating loving kindness, and carrying calm into the world.
