I believe that we are all on a journey of learning to develop our character. We encounter people, places, and events that challenge this growth and create learning opportunities. In some cases, the lessons are difficult ones, while others are much less painful. As I continue to learn, I realize that there can be lessons in the major events of life as well as the ordinary. My garden has spoken lessons and truth to me this summer. I am sure that this is not the first time, but I am in a place in my life that I am open to receive this guidance. My hope is that you can relate and see how these 7 lessons may apply in your life.
