It snowed yesterday. Today it is raining. The sun shines for a day and then disappears for several days. It's still cold and the ground is doing it's best to bring forth mud season. Oh, you don't know about mud season. Then you don't live in New England. We have summer, fall, winter, and mud. Those are our seasons. Here's the thing though, while we are feeling sorry for ourselves because we would like a bit of sun and some warmth, in the background, underneath the mud, and up in the trees and on the ponds, Spring is working its own magic...yes, even here in New England. I saw it this weekend and was amazed at how unobtrusive it was as it gently but purposefully snuck its way into my neighborhood. So we may have some rain, and we may even have some more snow...but now I know, it won't last. Nature is busy making itself known and what is more telling than Tulips...even if these came from Trader Joe's.
So embrace spring, however, and wherever it presents itself to you. The smallest of "life'" lives on throughout the winter, buried and hidden from view and once again joins us in the spring. Hope springs eternal.
