This morning, while everyone else was still sleeping, Maddy and I decided that we needed to get out of the house and find something green and alive (after a few dismal days of cold after a tease of Spring). So we went to the conservatory, let the moisture in the air soak into our post-winter-dry skin, took some pictures, and sat and wrote in our journals for awhile. It was just what we both needed.
That is all for today. No profound words, no searching questions, no emerging wisdom. Just a few photos to remind you that things will grow again, that children are beautiful, and that there is value in grabbing your journal and sitting next to a flower for awhile.
