About Annie Stevens

I've been through hell and back and I'm here to proclaim that "You can get through it!" Just keep going. If you're not dead, you're not done! My blog is from a Gardener's perspective. I want the reader to see that there is purpose in nature and that purpose is to help you navigate through life to find your own purpose. I've done a lot of different things over the last 50 some odd years and I hope by my story, you can find hope where there seems like there is no hope.

Winning in Rest

There’s nothing like a lazy Sunday afternoon nap to refresh your body and soul. I love snuggling up with a fuzzy blanket, just about an hour after a light lunch in the quiet of our bedroom to take a much-needed … Continue reading

Stay in the Race

The freedom to run like the wind helped me through a lot of the pain growing up in a physically abusive home.

After practice, he pulled me aside and asked how I had gotten the welt that still stung from the night before when my dad was in a drunken rage and I was the closest target to his anger.
