To care for and encourage the growth and development of.
That is one definition of the word nurture.
It also describes my life at this moment. I am helping to nurture my grand-daughter. It also is why my blogging is set aside at times.
But I feel like I have been given a gift.
Because to me there is no more important job in this world than the nurturing of our children and grand-children.
The last two weeks have been busy ones. Graduations parties, parades, festivals and the end of school.
And this little gal came right along with us to most of the festivities.
One morning while watching Nick Jr. and having a little breakfast I was able to give Addison her first up-do.
But she prefers to be outside on her grand-pa's lap when he mows.
On the few days that I haven't had little Addison it seemed to be raining.
Finally with some sunny days I was able to finish most of my planting.
I found the shelf at a garage sale.
It had the Homegoods price tag still on it.
DH was able to mount it on the stone using drywall screws.
I like the look and I am hoping to fluff it a bit more in the days to come.
I finished planting annuals and a few perennials out here.
Now for some good growing weather.
Because we've had rain to last a month or more.
So I plant.
And I look forward to things blooming and filling in.
And I nurture.
But I also know that I need to nurture myself sometimes as well.
And that my friends is something us gals sometimes have a hard time doing.
Have a wonderful week and don't forget to nurture when you can.
