Oh I do so love this time of year. What a relief to see signs of new life all around. I find myself touching blooming buds, photographing daffodils, looking up at the bluer (sometimes) sky, waking up earlier to lighter mornings, listening to the birds singing and then watching them gather nest material and of course the super cuteness of newborn lambs. It's all so good - the wonder of it all.
In between the celebrating of the arrival of Spring, there has been a lot of (minor) illness in our family recently. I'm struggling again (just got over the last one a couple of weeks ago) with a nasty cold and the boys have both had stomach upsets and colds too. It's kind of 'almost' funny that this has been happening just at the same time as I am preparing my ecourse entitled 'Embrace'. I've had to really focus on the good things and what's working well and then try to push forward knowing that this too will pass but I'd be lying if I said it's been easy, far from it.
As I look around though at all this new life, it reminds me that everything has it's own unique rhythm and that there are ebbs and flows naturally in life - as with the seasons there is a time of blooming (Spring/Summer) and a time of quiet (Winter). This simple realisation has given me comfort and renewed my deep sense of knowing and trust, that things will work out just as they are meant to and in the meantime, I need to, well, just embrace it all.
I do hope you're well and enjoying the first signs of Spring or Autumn (depending on where you are).
By the way, the flowers below have just arrived this morning from my Mum - thanks for the get well wishes and I just love these hydrangeas. Love you Mum!
