In a series of meditations centred on the garden, Sister Stan offers a thought a day to guide us calmly through our ever-quickening world. Taking her cues from nature, she weaves her spiritual advice around the seasons we all share, reflecting on and contemplating the natural treasures that exist 'in our own back yard'. With literary quotes reflecting the breadth of her wisdom Sister Stan gives a different thought for each day of the year. Inspiring, comforting and soothing; whether you need spiritual comfort or just a pick-me-up through the day, this will be a book to treasure.* 18 September - 'Imagine what it would be like if the animal world was as competitive as the human world. Birds would try to destroy each other's nests. Bees would kill each other to get at the nectar. Certainly animals sometimes have to compete but their competition is about living; they compete to survive. They live every day without the need to win or lose. Imagine, on the other hand, what our lives would be like without the success and failure syndrome. If we could live by sharing rather than by competing, we could go at our own pace and choose what is right for us.'
