I have a tendency to make up my mind about how things should look and, in essence, be. when certain things do not go my way, I end up feeling somewhat frazzled. People that go with the flow have always inspired me, as it’s something I with to emulate. that being said, a life with children leaves little room for expectations and foreseeable outcomes. I may have plans for the day, but they may take a totally different turn – new circumstances arrive, an outside factor enters the mix… the entire plan changes.

this week I have had the opportunity to have this happen exceptionally frequently. I have gone with it. It is surely a mark of my own growth and my ability to adjust. I truly believe my Self exploration and role as a mama has enhanced this ability within me. I am grateful for my growth today.

Potato for today: go with the flow of life, as life’s flow has some beautifully unexpected trails you may never have ventured on otherwise.

for the last few weeks, we have been watching our potatoes sprouting on our table. as I look at the little prods coming forth, ever so slowly, from these hearty vegetables, I am reminded how progress progresses. over time, I have done my best to do my best, hoping that I will become a better woman, wife, mama, sister, daughter, and friend, but most importantly, that I would love my Self as I am. when I look at a single day, sometimes I cannot see any progress and think I should just stop planting all together. other times, I have the ability to look over the time and see the progress. much like these sprouting potatoes, it may not seem that they have sprouted that much, but when I think back to when they had no sprouts at all, they have come a long way.

potato for today: mark your progress by looking at Who You Are now and who you were before – celebrate your successes today!



What’s In A Name?

I have officially posted 7 posts… so it’s been a week. Just in case you may not know, here’s some more information about why I am doing this!

Plant Potatoes… what a name, right?

Well, last summer, when I first got into gardening, I learned a good deal about the different plants I was planting. One was the potato. I was so impressed with the ease and life of these root vegetables. I was working with my two year old on learning about being socially, spiritually, and intellectually responsible and got the idea for this name.

Planting potatoes is one of the easiest things to do. It only takes one potatoes to reap multiples. I believe that if you plant one little potato in the life of your child, husband, family, or other moms, it will reap many.
