‘Welcome to spring’

spring 1There’s no way that we can deny that Spring has really and truly arrived – there are signs of it wherever we look – glorious swaths of daffodils waving their pretty heads in the wind

delicate blossoms sprouting from what were not too long ago bare branches

I love the Spring!

I came across this poem written by my mum many – many years ago – I have her to thank for so much inspiration that she continues to pass on 19 years after leaving this world.

I went out walking this afternoon – with joy abroad in my heart

For I went to meet a well loved friend – after long – long months apart

How grand it was to see her – in beauty all arrayed

For hours and hours contentedly – with her I could have stayed

Where’re I went I saw her – and felt her in the air

And everyone seemed happy – because my friend was there

The splendour of her presence – was revealed in everything

Oh – thank you God for bringing back – my longed for friend – the Spring

 

I’m sure that you feel the same as I dospring – so glad to have my friend Spring back with me! So – even on the cold days – or when you’re feeling down – can I encourage you to go and meet with her – she is sure to lift your spirits – and give you hope.
