Inspiration – Just Like Marriage

Sometimes traditional stories hit the right spot. This one did for me,  particularly at this time of year and in my marriage. Nadia spent the whole autumn sowing and preparing his garden. In the spring, the flowers opened, and Nadia noticed a few dandelions…

Knowing in a new way
