[What did I learn today? Lessons on the Journey to Unconditional Self Love] Tend to the seeds

When I put peace first, I just know what to do. A Course in Miracles

I haven't seen my granma in a while, she has been out of the country. I
decided to pay her a visit as she returned on Monday night, I had a meeting
close to her house, I called her to ask if she would be at home so I can
come over the day before. On the morning she called me and said "Walk with
containers I cooked for you for a month" I laughed thinking she was
exaggerating! (I forgot the containers as well!!)

When I got there I swore the kitchen was that of a restaurant, there was
food everywhere! The woman literally cooked food for me to last a month! So we sat at our usual spot in the kitchen around the now overfull kitchen
table to have our usual conversations which starts off with politics and
inside there she would say "But child, how are you really doing?" She told
me, I heard all of your radio interviews online, you did good child! You
are planting the seeds and don't dig them up with doubt and listening to
what other people think you should be doing. Tend to the seeds ok, let your
spirit guide you, ok?

Grateful for the food!
