Like I have mentioned, 2011 is not off to a good start. My awesome Dad is ill. My back is still not better. The Babylady is three. Which means she is no longer a sociopath but is a mix of tyrant and comedian. It is difficult to predict which because 3 year olds are also incredibly labile. And I don’t need to tell you about the world at large. There are no adequate words for the state of the world. It is an almost ridiculous simplification to merely say it ridden with injustice, unrest and tragedy. Yet, I have no idea what else to say.
I’ll spare you the rest as I’m pretty sure you don’t come here to hear all that. But my heart is breaking for my family and for the world at large.
In an effort to take care of myself (shocking, I know) and soothe my soul, I actually let myself rest and allow some of the hope of spring to come wash over me. I wandered around the garden to really peek at what is going on. Want to take a look? While it is nowhere near the budding lushness that was about the same time last year, the garden is still showing promise, growth and rebirth. And with the sun shining I found a few moments of peace.
That is all friends! I hope your Spring is starting out with plenty of hope, sunshine and health!
