Spring has sprung! Everyone gets excited about spring; flowers popping up through the ground, grass turning green, the smell of new things in the air, people standing in their yards talking, flying kites, new kittens, baby calves springing up in all the pastures, anticipation of 6 months of no winter! Yesterday evening I was sitting on my south porch, sipping on a glass of red wine, relaxing while Irish harp music played on my I-pad. All of a sudden a bright red cardinal appeared on my budding tulip tree. He sat there, tipping his little head, as if listening to the music as well. I smiled, said hello little friend, and away he flew. I said thank you Lord for the small things that make us grateful. Happy “spring” to all…may you see joy in the little things as well.
