“It is in the solitude and safety of my garden that I have experienced the deepest sense of peace. Peace with my past, acceptance of the long years of loneliness I endured, and forgiveness of those who have hurt me — especially those who’ve hurt me without ever knowing. I have also learned to forgive my own failures. Nature is a patient teacher.” ~Tricia Clark-McDowell, The Sanctuary Garden
