The love of my life begins with me.

I love and enjoy myself.

 

If we truly love ourselves
in spite of our flaws
then we can love others
in spite of theirs.

Garden changes

Standard

Inspired by Sally’s Blog – My beautiful things,

I really wanted to do my own Boody Garden.

I bought plants which should last a while and added my broken pottery.

 

As it looks now

 

I had some remaining bits

and I had to move my Parsley,

so I planted them into my old drawer.

Hopefully the Parsley comes again like last year.

 

It was so pleasant outside.

Sitting in the garden

listening to the  birds

is a wonderful recharge!

A rainy day is the perfect time for a walk in the woods – Rachel Carsen

 

Rain leaves beautiful ‘diamonds’ on leaves.

…a day to share a story.

The Leaf and the Tree

story by Tania Konnerth

retold by Ute

It was a normal Summer’s day.

The big tree has stood there for decades and its branches swayed in the wind.

He suddenly heard a sad sigh.

He listened carefully and heard another one.

It came from his own crown so it must be one of his leaves.

He looked among his leaves and saw a small unhappy leaf on one of the smaller branches.

He asked: “My dear leaf what is the matter?”

Surprised the leaf almost blushed.

“Oh nothing, I am just sad.”

“But why?”

“Because I feel that I am worth nothing. I am only a very tiny leaf among thousands. I don’t mean anything to you.”

“Oh, you are totally wrong there.” The tree spoke rather loudly as he was excited.

“You are the only leaf, that can grow at this special spot. If you were not exactly there, there would be a hole. I would not be complete without you. You make me to what I am. “

The leaf blushed  – out of joy.

And this joy lasted until Autumn, when it changed into beautiful colours in competition with all other leaves.

I love that story.

I have read more of Tania’s stories to my mum and we loved them so.

You can read more wonderful stories in Tania Konnerth’s book, in German.
