Seasons come and go, but this winter would not let go, adding layer upon layer of snow, and a few other challenges my way…. a broken wrist, two grad courses, and lastly, pneumonia. But there is someone I know who had a much rougher winter to whom I dedicate this wee poem and spring blooms. She faced off 16 rounds of chemo to treat Stage 2 breast cancer, her last one, just yesterday! She has more hurdles ahead, but I pray to our loving Lord, and truly believe, winter is behind us both, dear Vicki!
With the weight of winter off my chest
The cold, grey clouds clear from the west
as warmer waves of wind drift in
Let light abound, and spring begin!
