The Garden of Daily Living - a belated Earth Day gift

(This was given to me by a senior who worked in our office sometime in 2012… I’ve lost contact with her, but will be forever grateful for this gift.)

For the garden of your daily living

Plant three rows of peas:
peace of mind, 
peace of heart, 
peace of soul.

Plant four rows of squash:
squash gossip, 
squash indifference, 
squash grumbling, and 
squash selfishness.

Plant four rows of lettuce:
lettuce be faithful, 
lettuce be kind, 
lettuce be patient, 
lettuce really love one another.

No garden is without turnips:
turnip for meetings, 
turnip for service, 
turnip to help one another.

To conclude our garden we must have thyme:
thyme for each other, 
thyme for family, 
thyme for friends.

Water freely with patience and cultivate with love.

There is much fruit in your garden because you reap what you sow.
