Water drop on a flower after watering my backyard garden

Five years ago, at a young age; I had a stroke. My busy life was forced to slow down. Slowing down is no easy task. My garden taught me how to move through life, and pay attention to the beautiful simplicity all around us. This photo was taken one day as I cried tears of frustration from the challenging work of recovery. My garden cries with me. My garden calms me. My garden is my quiet place.
