This past week Adam and I got to go with the youth in our branch to plant a garden of flowers at a nursing home.  At first I thought, "go play in dirt??? Aren't there spiders in there?" Haha my  family will understand this one;).  Buut, yes.  I did muster up the courage to go... Even with the thought that I might possibly see spiders in the ground.  But I'm here writing this post to say that, no I did not see any spiders, but I DID see worms.  Funny thing though... Somehow because I was wearing gloves I felt protected and unconquerable, like none of the worms or possibly even spiders could scare me.  This is a huge improvement for me if you know me.  Anyways, after playin in the dirt with Adam and other youth for a couple of hours Adam and I noticed that our gloves were pretty much shredded to bits.  I realized after that that I didn't care if I accidentally touched a worm and I certainly wasn't worried if I got dirt under my nails.  And then it hit me.  I actually enjoyed gardening.  I enjoyed playing in the sun.  And I enjoyed beautifying the nursing home grounds.  I think I might just have to have a garden when I have my own yard someday.. Even if there are spiders;).
