I don't know how long I've had this shell. It was given to me by my oldest aunt, who lived in Alabama. She was my gardening aunt and taught me a lot about how to grow things. Every year, when we went to visit the family, she would have plants from her gardens ready for me to bring home. My parents were not gardeners at the time, so it was up to me to find places for them and nurture them. She gave me this shell, which sat in the gardens at my parent's house, until they passed away and we sold the house. It then moved to one of my gardens, where it will remain. It has never lost any of it's color or luster.
Thanks Aunt Alphie.

The right path is not always easy. It may have many rocks and roots to stumble over. It is almost never smooth and flat. Most paths that we need to follow are uphill, making the journey more difficult. Strength from within puts us on the right path. It keeps us on the path to where we need to go. We must use that strength to stay on this path, no matter how difficult, because we know what is waiting for us at the top. Stay on your path!

We all make choices. Everyday. Choices about what to eat. What to wear. What to do today. Life and love. Some choices can be seen more clearly than others. How do we know what to choose when things are not so clear? Do we rely on instinct? On gut feelings? Sometimes the choices are already made. We just haven't realized it, yet.
