From death come new life....

We went to a local cemetary today to observe nature. This cemetary is very small and quaint with tons of old oak trees. It is quite amazing.

You can see Britney below ringing some chimes and singing a song to me.

We looked at headstones, talked about the people who had died, and talked about how precious life is. While we we're observing nature we saw a baby lady bug, butterflies, a hawk, a squirrel and a lot of trees with no leaves. Some of the trees were beginning to grow small green buds. I can't wait to see if these will be flowers or leaves.

Have a wonderful day and get out to enjoy some of nature.

Nature walks and journals....

Spring is coming....

I love spring...I'm so glad it's coming.

The kid's and I will be keeping nature journals that we will share. I've been hearing the birds chirping, squirrels scurrying, etc...

This last two years has been a difficult and miraculous time for me. I'm feeling more settled and relaxed now.

I've traveled a long path and I feel like I'm on the other side of the dark tunnel that I entered two years ago....

I've also just birthed (written) my first short story. Hmmm... a coincidence...probably not. I'll post the story soon.

I've also come up with something I want to do to impact my community and the world at large. More news to follow on this.

So spring is here and the challenges, miracles, hardships, beautiful things, etc... are all coming together to make my beautiful and messy life.
