Saturday was a balmy 72 degrees. Balmy, I tell you! After a full day of packing, we let Lydia strap on her helmet and rider her skuut bike in the driveway. It was so incredibly fun. After that we played with sidewalk chalk and ran around in the yard.
And I felt my heart and spirit buoyed. I am not kidding. I honestly felt like I came out of a fog yesterday. I remember posting once about connecting with God when I’m surrounded by nature. Now don’t be decieved, I am not an outdoorsy girl. I don’t hike or swim or garden. But just being outside surrounded by birds and
flowers blossoms dead grass was rejuvenating!
The only, I repeat, ONLY thing I’m going to miss about this house is our tree. Remember our tree? It’s the most beautiful white and pink dogwood surrounded by pink and white and fuschia azaleas. I almost ache thinking about leaving it. A few months ago, I posted some pictures of our tree in every season. I’m going to frame those for our new house. As a reminder of this beautiful season of our lives. A season that is ending–just like winter. And like yesterday, my heart is being opened and is getting ready for Spring—this new season in our lives! I am excited to see what blossoms!
