A New Day

It is amazing what 24 hours, some prayer, a walk and a nap will do for one's perspective.... specifically MY perspective. Tuesday evening, I was grieving. When I awoke Wednesday, I was tired, and angry. I decided, despite the seemingly unending list of things to do, a nap would be in my best interests.

I awoke a few hours later, feeling a little better. Walking the dog was next on the "to do" list, followed by a shower, a trip to the bank and a quick stop by the elementary school. As I made progress through the list of tasks, I felt better and better.

Mid-afternoon, as my children returned from school, I noticed them. The first violets of spring. By the corner of the porch, they bloomed. Leaves barely unfurled, in the midst of the winterized grass, bright purple!

YES! Thank You God... Spring is coming! Hope! Renewal! New Life. YES! (just in time!)

I can't even begin to tell you how much better I feel! I am so grateful for the friends that I have talked with, prayed with, and the now daily reminders that spring is just around the corner!

Thank you God!
