I have to honestly say that I was not overly joyous this week.
In fact, there were a few days where I was having a really hard time finding joy in anything.
Even the simple everyday graces that usually blow my mind were not doing it this week.
I get like that sometimes.
Just overwhelmed by the “bad”.
I am just so very grateful that my strength, my big heart and my love for this precious life
I woke up this morning feeling far more like my Self.
I also awoke to the joyous explosion !
Just two days ago, before we had a rainy day Wednesday,
all of these maple buds were on the trees.
Now they cover the deck, the backyard, and pretty much the entire neighborhood with this yellowy green carpet!
And just look what they have left behind on the trees!
New born leaves, with the most magical green-ness you can imagine.
Still like butterflies opening their wings, tender, yet ready to sway in the wind,
soak up the sun and warmth and bring it to its roots way far below,
and offer shade and homes to the birds, squirrels and other creatures on the ground below them.
Each leaf a part of one huge amazingly miraculous being.
In spite of the wounds in my heart, the scars on my world,
and the incredible sadness I feel when I think other dear hearts who are suffering and in pain,
the birth of that green-ness brought me joy deep down inside today.
And I thought I should share it with you.
One big Love, Beautiful Ones.
