Good Morning!!

It is a lovely day. The skies are various shades of gray and the birds are singing.

I contemplate these words.

"Activity is not achievement. It is not enough to rush about beginning a lot of things and keeping busy. A well-spent life is one that rounds out what it has begun."

-- Eknath Easwaran

I am reminded of two Redwood sprouts we received when Jeff and Chris were young. We attended Scout-a-rama and Jeff and Chris were each given a small sprout about six inches long, wrapped in a wet, paper towel. We planted the sprouts in little pots, and, then, bigger pots. One never grew more than two feet tall. It was alive, but remained a short, stubby, little guy. The other one grew and grew until it divided into two and towered over our house. I think of it this morning as I consider my life and how perhaps to "round out what has begun."

There are many ways to grow, and I have full choice now as to how my life is honed. This, with the horses, is leadership training. It is a further training in how I lead my life. May we all sow a growing awareness as we honor the cycles of rain and sun.
