“From heav’nly thoughts all true delight doth spring.” ~ Thomas Campion
As you will remember from yesterday’s blog, I was bound and determined to go find spring. But there was no need – spring came and found me!
Yesterday, as I took my daily lunchtime walk, I was drawn to a rock along the shoreline of the Yampa River. I decided to sit and stay awhile. The river flowed loudly and briskly by, waters high from the snowmelt, cascading down from the upper elevations of the Rocky Mountains. As I sat, I began to drift slowly and deeply into my own thoughts of our upcoming Easter reunion with our son. Guess what happened? I was roused by “quack, quack…quack, quack, quack!” Two little mallard ducks floated nearby. Climbing out of the river to greet me, I watched the little ducklings waddle, and peck at the ground looking for earthworms. I thought “these two little ducks have come to give me a message – be patient, spring is on the way.”
Often we search only for outward signs of spring – changes in the weather and landscape. But, in the stillness and silence of a moment, we realize that an awakening of spirit comes from within. We need to listen. Feelings of rejuvenation and renewal can come in unexpected ways and during unanticipated times.
I am going to take a break from the blogging world. I will return after Easter. I am going to take time to discover subtle changes in my own spirit. I will say goodbye to winter, for once and for all, and allow spring to enter and settle within my soul. I will be spending time with my loved ones making more memories as a family and piling our baskets high with All Things Fulfilling. I will keep you posted as to how my spring unfolds.
Happy Easter to You! May you find re-birth and renewal in your life, in your own special way!
