Signs of Spring: Budding

I will admit that I found myself doing a little happy dance, in the yard,  when I walked out to the barn and noticed the bright crimson buds swelling, on the trees.  And that sky!  Look at that brilliant blue sky!!   Spring is on her way, and I am walking on sunshine…

The Gift of Gratitude: Trees

Today celebrates Day 7 of my 31 Days of Gratitude.  Trees are one of my most favorite gifts of Mother Earth.  They hold such a beautiful balance between land and sky.


The tree is often a reminder to remain true and grounded, no matter how challenging a situation may be.  This stunning and intricate part of nature reminds me that my roots run deep and will nourish me, during times of need. I am thankful for the yearly reminder of change, as colorful hues release and blanket Mother Earth.  Most importantly, the tree teaches me to always…GROW!
