The spring is all about new growth, new life.
Our house is especially full of new life this year. It seems like everything is coming up in my yard double time. All the ground cover has spread, the grass is greener. My son has even had to cut the grass twice this week. I’ve added more flowers in the hope that l’ll have even new life next year.
Saturday, I hosted a bridesmaids’ luncheon for a lifelong friend of my daughter. Her friend will be getting married this coming weekend. That will be the beginning of a new life together. I wish the new couple the best of everything.
Three weeks ago my son’s cat had kittens. One gold, one white and one gray. I call them Goldie, Ghost, and Tuggs. The kittens are so sweet and are just now starting to walk. I will hate to see them leave with someone when the time comes but I do know it will have to happen. Another shining example of new life.
But I have more. Friday night my married daughter came by the house with a cake that had May May piped on the top. That was her way of telling me that I will be a grandmother in December. I want to be called May May. The thought of this new life makes my heart swell. The father is the guy in green. These are my kids at Easter. Joseph, Zach, Mary Beth, Nick and Drew.
Tell me about anything new in your life. Or just some go old fashioned good news.
