Then it snowed.
Again, it warmed up, and again... it snowed.
Now it's warm again.
Truly, it's enough to make anyone's head spin. That's what happened to mine. Well, ok... my head spins when just about anything halfway interesting happens,
But this time was different. We had gone through several large differences in weather at a time when things should just be warming up. I therefore took advantage of the warming period yesterday, and took a walk.
The cold weather can be horribly frustrating, but if you allow yourself a brief walk you notice that even immediately after a major snowfall, nature strives to get back into balance.
At least, that's what the hostas planted last spring told me as they thrust from the soil, awakening from their dormancy. The tiny plants barely poked through the topsoil, green and strong.
|I know... they're tiny. Don't worry, though! They'll grow!|
...the bushes beside the drugstore decided to skip that whole leaf growing part, and just push out a bunch of glorious blossoms!
|Anyone know what these are? They're gorgeous!|
We all can.
We just have to take a moment to disconnect from our day-to-day struggles and just relax and take it all in. Reach out to what makes us strong -
just like these plants.
