Sowing the Seeds of Time

As told by Grace

Oh…just caught me finishing up my garden. It does my heart good to plant a new petunia now and then. I tend to my garden every day. They say that plants do better when you talk to ‘em so I whistle some or hum a tune. If you look hard enough, sometimes you can see the leaves smile, smile even bigger in full bloom. Kinda like relationships. They fill up in goodness with the right care over time.

And so it is with Stellar in-home care. When Virginia, my CareGiver, came to my house for our first visit, oh my– I was so jittery! Got all worked up inside…not sure why…I suppose we had no history…and the only way we could git some is by going whole hog. Now ya can’t just sit there like a bump on a log! So we got to know one another, not put upon, just natural, like how this flower finds its place in the soil. And through our time together, something special blossomed– a kinship. And we are both the better fo’ it. Don’t’ care much for her singin’ though…needs some work there…
