Hi Dear Readers! Is it March 21st already?! Amazing. Today I'm sharing some vintage green.
It has been a beautiful month. The weather has been lovely for many of the days, daffodils are blooming, the fruit trees are beginning to bloom, and tulip leaves have pushed up halfway.
I spent the first two weeks of March helping a neighbor prepare and move to an assisted living facility. It was a job in more ways than one, but I think it's a decision that will prove very beneficial for her. Then ...
I promptly got sick with bronchitis. I am feeling better, although my cough will probably be slow in leaving, if the past is any indication. But this is "majorly minor" compared to what many others are dealing with right now, and I know I am blessed.
In my life, "springing back" from a huge project or big shift in priorities, or whatever, has rarely been immediate. It's usually a process; sometimes an agonizingly-slow one!
Also during March, I've been pondering my blog, and was not feeling one ounce of inspiration for new posts. But then I realized it probably wasn't the blog, but me. Enthusiasm waxes and wanes regarding many interests, but I'm sure I won't regret persevering.
"I hope I will always be singing--not asking what the future holds, but being thankful for the present; content to work, to spread some happiness if I may, and always trying to be my best self."
From Upon My Lips a Song by Kate Smith.
For the grace of God has appeared that offers salvation to all people. It teaches us to say "No" to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age, while we wait for the blessed hope--the appearing of the glory
of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ.
I can't think of a circumstance where springing back wouldn't be worth the time and effort. It just feels so much better!
Enjoy your weekend,
PS: The little trays are well-worn papier mache from Alfred E. Knobler, Japan. The teacup is Heathcote from England. The trinket holder is Lefton. The ring holder is a little dusty. :O)
