This is a wonderful place to be. Wrapped in warmth and not from a furnace – the gentle warmth of sunshine, surrounded by blue skies and soft breezes. The birds are singing all around me; made it hard to hear the You-Tube video I’m thinking of putting on this post – bluegrass – not my usual. We’ll see. The old “When in Rome…“ And the smells – more like early summer, plowed fields, blooming plant life. And green hills all around me! This is absolutely delightful and that’s not a word I commonly use.
This time of year lends so much hope and that’s a theme of mine. There is ALWAYS hope. Miss Sarah, the neighbor, just came over to get introduced, very much the Southern lady. I also met Miss Darlene, who joined us for dinner on my brother’s birthday and brought a gift for ME! I love the manners, the graciousness and the hospitality. Traditions that are carried from generation to generation and make life so much more pleasant for everyone.
And about that hope. It makes so much difference to look at the world and one’s circumstances through hopeful eyes. Yes, things get turned upside down, people face challenges of many kinds, but this is the world and the life we have. We can whine our way through it or we can dance. And let me say, as one who’s been down, dancing is a lot better way to get through a challenge! As long as you can get on your feet, there’s a dance on the other side just waiting for you. Blessings!
