Spring is the time of year when change is all around me. As I step out the back door I am surrounded by beauty - and each day that beauty changes into something else. The flowers begin with a bud - a promise if you will.
By the next day, or sometimes later in the afternoon, they start to change, slowly revealing the colors of their petals.
And this day, they are unfurled even more. Almost every plant in our yard is either blooming, in full bloom or already losing their blooms. Change is inevitable in our natural world. Accepting change as it comes, enjoying the different phases and stages is all part of living this full life of mine.
"If you surrender completely to the moments as they pass, you live more richly those moments." - Anne Morrow Lindbergh
