It is going on three years that I have had ample opportunity to benefit from the green thumb of my neighbor. She drags out her pots, soil, and seeds. And with every passing day, slowly but surely something beautiful and wonderful appears. This has been a pretty good year.
But since those humbling beginnings, Trayse has become such a light in my life. I love her mind, and her humor, her faith, and her love of her family. She is such an inspiration to me. From her I have learned to express my love to others, and to feel comfortable having love expressed to me. She is such a blessing in my life. I'm so glad that we had those moments together.
