I don’t think most people find transitions easy.
Neither does nature. It’s particularly noticeable in Winter to Spring. We are tired of slipping and sliding on snow. We are tired of dark days. We are tired of cold. Spring teases us with sun, flowers and green grass and then another snow storm. Maybe that’s why April Fools Day starts off the first month of Spring?
Spring Transitions – Lovely blues skies one day, gray and snow the next. We have to dig into our reservoir of hope and trust that the blue skies will be back again.
The forsythia blooms, only for snow to come a day later.
The daffodils are one of the first flowers in my garden to make a show, then are covered in a blanket of white.
But there is still a beauty about this time. Waiting and hoping for change, noticing the good; building perseverance isn’t totally painful.
Pretty soon all things will be new. That is the promise of Easter. That is the promise of Spring.
