Spring


After the girls ate candy for breakfast and ran around like crazy bunnies looking for Easter eggs, I went out to work in the garden. I raked the late Autumn leaves off the flower beds. New daffodil leaves were hidden under them, pale yellow green because they'd been hidden from the sun. My youngest ran up and down the sidewalk, blowing bubbles and chasing them. It was a lovely moment in early Spring, but at the same time, I was distracted and worried about my husbands illness, and the surgery next week. Which is how things are now. Still, here's to Spring, to new beginings, and happy hopeful greening times in the sun, for all of us.
