The piles of snow are melting, making funky patterns on my deck
and making my mind want to dare to think of Spring. Which, if you live in the Inland Northwest, is a very pointless exercise! But I can always hope! :)
Valentine tulips make me smile.
The circle of life goes on and in February one tends to think about it more. Nature hangs waiting, seemingly dead and still, for the warmth of life in the Spring breezes.
I sit waiting on my first grandchild. I never imagined that I would feel almost as impatient as when it was my own. I will fly East on the 20th,my Mom's 71st birthday...if she were still here....I will leave to see my first grandchild, her 23rd great grandchild.....new life, not replacing the old ,just continuing the cycle of life...carrying on the heritage of what went before.
Today is all sunshine and bright, blue skies.
I received a gorgeous bridal shower invitation today...another happy reminder of the goodness of the cycle of life.....
I now am the (not so) proud owner of new pair of reading glasses. A not so happy reminder of life's cycles.....
I got a funky purple pair. Not because they look good on me. I'm not sure they do...but I have determined that "when I am old , I shall wear purple"! :)
