Thankful Thursday - All Things New

Good Morning Friends

Sorry for my silence, there has been a lot going on here.  And not all of it has been happy.  But I did want to post today to remind everyone to be Thankful.  

Thankful for all things new.

We experienced an absolutely glorious Easter was last weekend.  And now Spring is here with all the smells and sounds and sights that accompany it.  Sprouts are literally bursting through the ground to take back the landscape from the last vestiges of winter's grasp.  I am amazed, every year, at how resilient and bold the crocuses are.  With just a bare minimum of melted snow they peak their heads out of the frozen ground and quickly come to full bloom, despite snow and ice still apparent all around them.

And soon?  Soon it will be the pansies.  They will appear and blanket so many gardens with the promise of new life.  And sometimes "new life" is what we need to focus on.....

So today I am thankful for Spring and the promise of all the newness that is to come. 

I hope each and every one of you is able today to take some time to be thankful.  For Spring.  For the promise of what is yet to come.  And for knowing that there is always something new and bright and beautiful on the horizon.

God Bless each and every one of you,    ~Cynthia     <><
