(Author of The Twelve Gifts From the Garden) Charlene Costanzo wants us to spread the seed of kindness.
“The finest qualities of our nature, like the bloom on fruits, can be preserved only by the most delicate handling. Yet we do not treat ourselves nor one another thus tenderly.” – Henry David Thoreau
May we soon treat ourselves and others with great appreciation, like delicate blooms, tenderly, with care.
With love, kindness, and reverence,
THE NINTH GIFT IS REVERENCE.
May you appreciate the wonder that you are
and the miracle of all creation.
