When a Zen Garden Isn’t

Little fingers picking through the rocks and raking sand out of the tray defeat the purpose of my zen garden.

It’s not relaxing to clean up scattered sand.

But little fingers are so eager and so busy and so excited, and they won’t be little for much longer.

It’s not that hard to brush up the mess.

And when little fingers encourage my heart, then a zen garden IS.

Thanks for heart-composting with me! I appreciate your words.
