#BlogExodus 4: Grow

If I could grow a flower garden, I'd be sure to plant enough seeds to ensure a daily bouquet of patience, acceptance, optimism, happiness, curiosity, compassion, understanding, generosity, hope, and perseverance to carry out into the world with me.

What would you grow in your garden?

Inspired by Ima on (and off) the Bima, this post is one in a series marking the days of the Jewish month of Nisan leading up to Passover, which begins at sundown on Friday, April 22, corresponding to 15 Nisan. If you want to play along, check out this year's #BlogExodus and #ExodusGram prompts. Once again, this series of posts also is priming my heart, mind, and spirit to participate in Beyond Walls: Spiritual Writing at Kenyon, a six-day summer writing seminar that is an initiative of the Kenyon Institute at Kenyon College in Gambier, OH.
