Daffodils…..

Baker reached out and took her hand, assisting as Belle eased into the stream.  Eager to wade…explore…celebrate childhood… and the approaching Spring….their red heeler shadowed every move, every crossing, enthusiastically wagging her tail… Squatting along the green, moss-covered rocks, I watched them disappear upstream…voices trailing off… the sounds of footfalls in the water dissipating… the dog, Gigi, in pursuit….  Just like that…. as quickly as the snow melts and the daffodils surface… I pray they are prepared… and that I am prepared.

The sound of water flowing across rocks…swirling in the shallows….temporarily delayed… pile up the rocks and dam the progress, knowing that gravity and viscosity ultimately prevail…

Reflection on the water…after these wearisome days… worn and tattered…. a banner left on display through wind and rain…scarcely legible…and I am very happy… I have been provided with a blessing… a gift…. Unencumbered children… freedom… a stalwart relationship with these two…. and I know….as the mountains are all connected… and the roots of all trees are entwined….I will go wherever they go….and they with me. 

In another season… perhaps when the dogwoods are in full display….amongst emergent bud and delicate bloom…as Life weaves her braids…and I am surely becoming my blessings and memories and gifts… proud of my children… content with our path….confident with tomorrow.
