Here Comes the Spring!
Yesterday, I saw this little sea of grape hyacinths peeping out of the green grasses. I remember that when I was a child, my Father always brought in a few tiny grape hyacinths to put on our dinner table with the daffodils. We had these little flowers along our front walk, and I remember my Grandmother bending over to tend them. We also had larger pink and purple hyacinths. Isn’t is funny how the sight of such a little thing can transport you back to the days of your youth?
Here comes the spring…
“If nature has made you for a giver, your hands are born open, and so is your heart; and though there may be times when your hands are empty, your heart is always full, and you can give things out of that–warm things, kind things, sweet things–help and comfort and laughter–and sometimes gay, kind laughter is the best help of all.”
