Cherish Life, Gardening & Flowers, Life & Death

In The Garden of Life

“I am spending delightful afternoons in my garden, watching everything living around me. As I grow older, I feel everything departing, and I love everything with more passion.”

Emile Zola (1840 – 1902), in the year of his death.

Life is sweet and yet it is also a bittersweet journey.

This morning while doing my morning reading, I found the quote above and thought I would blog about it. It is uncanny that as I went to prepare this blog post, I realized today was the day my mother died in 1993.

I can still remember on that day, the lilacs in full bloom in the tree in her parking lot at the apartment building she lived in.

I love this quote and it reminds me to enJOY the gift of life and the gift of each day.

I am delighted to see so many people starting to enJOY flowers, plants and gardening. It seems as though people are awakening to the exact energy of this quote and it is beautiful indeed.

I will keep this quote handy to remind me of the sweetness of life and also as a reminder to appreciate the gift of another day.
