Planting tiny seeds.

There is a wonderful little set of books called Elf-Help. I picked up one many years ago in a gift shop. The title is Keep-life-simple-therapy. I refer back to this book very often. A quote I would like to share with you is one which reminds me of the difference we can make in the lives of our grandchildren...after all they are like the seeds we have planted in our life.

"Think small. Planting tiny seeds in the small space given to you can change the world - or at least your view of it". Linus Mundy

Even if I can not change the world I can change the lives of those around me.

I would like to thank Vibrant Nation for honoring me with the inclusion of my garden stake article in their fabulous website for Baby Boomers. If you have never seen this website you need to check it out, lots of good information.

Cindy,

These are some great tips for getting grandkids to help out and to learn something in the process. Thanks to Vibrant Nation for spotting your insightful blog. After all, you're a boomer diva on the move and making a difference!

I thought you were a neat person from the time we met, but you have gone way beyond that to me. I would say you are a wonderful person, and it is my privilege to know you. You are a awesome role model for your grandchildren also.

Just stopping by to say welcome to the Divas! I can see we are going to become friends - we already share much in common. Grandkids, blogging, the Divas - and I've finally met someone else who knows about the Elf-Help books! I love them! Love your blog. Will be looking forward to reading more and getting to know you better.

The markers are a great idea. Your post reminded me briefly of my grandfather's crops and our tomato picking memories.

That's wonderful Karen, my grandparents always had a garden too..at that point in my life I hated having to pick stuff!! At every meal my wonderful grandpa would tell us each and everything on the table that was raised in his garden. Great memories!!
