Charlene Costanzo, author of The Twelve Gifts From The Garden, has a message of hope and wonder.

“Being part of the natural world reminds me that innocence isn’t ever lost completely; we just need to maintain our goodness to regain it.” ~ Jewel

Even in our elder years, when we are far beyond babyhood cuteness, our innocence is not completely lost. Some essential purity is tucked away inside us, next to the wonderment we knew as children, along with our natural readiness to love and be loved. 

Today, let’s aim to be in touch with the life-trusting hope and innocence in us, to renew our awesome wonderment, and to restore our childlike readiness to love and be love. 

With joy,
