Be the Inspiration

Be the Inspiration

by Danny Summers

The natural change of seasons can be a time of encouragement. The promise of spring brings a sense of renewal and new life. Most people have never had the experience of walking into a greenhouse in early spring. Just to see all the young plants and flowers there, waiting for the chance to be selected and to be added to a home garden is exciting... and inspirational. There are so many ways to "Be the Inspiration" in spring.

Do you expound upon the beauty, facets or character of the individual flower or plant? There are so many to talk about each week and so many great stories. Do you show how they can make you feel?

Or do you help paint a visual picture of creating an oasis of plants and flowers in the garden, patio, or back deck? What can that oasis feel like and what can it do for those who reside there?

Or maybe you share how the activity of gardening helps bring a more calm and relaxing approach to life to help time move just a little slower.

Or maybe explore what the activity of gardening can do for your customer and their family as an activity together.

Or maybe consider sharing how the love of plants and the garden started for you. Maybe it was from your parents. Often it is a grandparent's love of gardening that planted a seed that took root in our hearts.

For me, it was seeing my grandparents' home garden behind their small white framed house. It was also my aunt and uncle who had a big farm and every summer we explored their huge vegetable garden just in time to help pick the bounty of their efforts. It was amazing to me. Both of these were in North Central Missouri where the soil was dark, and amazingly rich. Just its smell gave confidence it would grow anything well... even kids.

Everyone needs Inspiration and the flowers, plants, trees (and even soil) you offer can be just what they need. They may not know it but that's where you come in. Help plant the seed in everything you share... in every message you, your staff, and your Center presents.

You really don't know how much it will mean in their lives. Be the Inspiration!

Happy Spring and Happy Sharing!
