Day 13 “Stop It!” Change Your Self Talk Change Your Life. Amy Jo Ellis

Today I was with Barbara Goggin’s at a her aunt’s garden party.

I realized that this week is all about plucking the weeds from our own PRO-verbial gardens.  We are choosing which ideas to give room to grow and which ones we should weed out.

It made me think about my own garden and how my husband accidentally planted a huge box of wildflower seeds in the exact location I was about to plant vegetables.

I had brought in dirt, raked and leveled the  bed, then went shopping.   When I got home my husband said.  “Hey, I found the boxes of wild flower seeds so I  scattered them for you.
I’m sure my expression was horrified!  “Where did you plant them?”
He said.  “Where you got it ready… Isn’t that where you wanted them.”
“No, I said, awkwardly trying hard not to make him feel bad. “That is where I planned to plant the vegetables.”   He said.  “What vegetables?”    I said  “These” as I opened the door to the car and showed him a car full of plants.

“He said,  “Let’s just plant them their anyway.  Usually these wildflower seeds don’t take anyway.”

The effect of this accident is STUNNING!!!   
My new slogan is this.  “If you are going to have weeds in your garden, you might as well plant them yourself!”

The Neighbor gave me a box of resin and ceramic chickens. This little rooster is eyeing my cherry tomatoes.



I am your average everyday mother of 3 with now 3 grandkids. I am also a singer/songwriter performing in country clubs and dinner houses. But behind all of this, there is the ability to listen deeper into my own thoughts and hear where the good ideas are actually coming from. It's the same place that I came from... God
