Sometimes we as a society move to fast. Not always out of necessity, but just because. I am guilty of this myself, however, we can also choose to maintain or slow it down. I was running a tad behind this morning due to having too much fun at an event.
As I departed my house, I had to pause…..moving to fast, I told myself. I noticed my tree peony’s that I moved from Fredericksburg were waving their red torches in proud form. This , I know is a sure sign of seasons changing. I took a little more time and glanced to the right and noticed a shadowing of red as well. Only this time it was on the Japanese Maple that reigns Queen in my shade garden.
The daffodils are popping, why I even saw crocuses in bloom. I imagine that this weekend, I will find more time to stroll through my garden amidst its winter nakedness, I will find more signs of change and embrace the beauty in all the earth, no matter the season.
Change…….it is a good thing and a necessary part of life!by
