Generally, appreciation means some blend of thankfulness, admiration, approval, and gratitude. In the financial world, something that "appreciates" grows in value. With the power tool of appreciation, you get the benefit of both perspectives: as you learn to be consistently thankful and approving, your life will grow in value. (Lucy MacDonald.typepad)
I always had fresh fruits and Vegatables as a kid growing up. My Father used a lot of our yard to plant Trees : Oranges, Lemons, guaves, papayas, berries, strawberries, apples.. Vegetables:
Lettuce, Beans, Onions, Squash, peppers, carrots, rhubarb, brocolli, cabbage, tomatoes...
I enjoyed picking from our garden that was always plentiful.. I don't think I really appreciated it then.. Just thought everyone had a garden.. It was lots of work but, the exciting part was the benefit it gave to all of us.
My Father still has a garden and has given our Family lots of fresh produce throughout our life. At times we have had our own garden and my children have enjoyed the Harvest..
I am grateful for the Bounties of the Earth and appreciate the Gifts our Father in Heaven has
given us.. We have a small area but, we are thinking we should do a small garden.. I know it takes work and labor and time yet, the benefits of a Garden our worth it..
Do you have a Garden???? What do you enjoy about it???? Have a great weekend..
