I'm Still Walking

Walking with strength
with power, 
with heart and dignity.
I walk with a limp,
a foot dragging. 
I walk with weakness,
very slowly....
...with fragility.

I walk with intention,
with stillness
and sometimes sorrow.

I walk with laughter
keeping my sense of humor close by.
I'm still walking
smiling, filled with joy.
My strength,
and love 
keeping me going.

Still walking... 
...with gratitude.

Houseplants make my home warmer, the air cleaner and even reduce noise.

I've always had a green thumb.  I got it from my Grandmother.  She could grow anything.  My newest addition to our  indoor garden is called Croton (Codiaeum hybrid).  I am hoping that it will do well over the winter months, because I've read they're difficult to please indoors.  In the warmer months, I'll keep it outdoors.  In the meantime I'll keep you posted on how it's doing.
