The spring came suddenly, bursting upon the world as a child bursts into a room, with a laugh and a shout, and hands full of flowers.

~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (American poet and educator; 1802 – 1887).

Today, I wish for you a garden to walk in or, at least, the chance to step outside into the vibrant colors and sounds of spring. May you take time–make time–to look around and give thanks. We live in a glorious, beautiful world!
