Happy Easter! - Happy Spring!!


I was raised Catholic.  We celebrated Easter big time.  Stations of the Cross on Good Friday, coloring eggs on Saturday, church and a big family dinner on Sunday.  But for various reasons, I'm not a practicing Catholic anymore.  Christian, but not Catholic.  That's as far as I'll go with blogging about religion.

These days, I celebrate spring.  I celebrate new beginnings.  The anticipation of things to come.  Last year, I took part in Big Picture Classes "Picture Spring" class.  And right now, I can't remember the photo prompts we had, but I just reviewed the pictures I took.  And they give me the same hope that spring always gives me. 

The promise of things to come.

The realization that there will be some pesty issues that will need to be addressed.

The reminder that I might be looking plump now, but if I stay busy with all the things I need to do to take care of myself and my family, I'll trim down quickly.

The thought that I'm starting with a clean slate in my garden and that it's up to me to provide it with enough care and nurturing to allow it to become its most beautiful.

The attitude that with a little perserverance, I can push thru anything
and the beauty of my efforts will come through. 

The comfort to realize that sometimes things take time to show us their
ultimate gift, and that patience is required on my part. 

I wish you PEACE on this Easter weekend. And always.
