Harbingers of Spring

By , March 3, 2011 7:18 am

The Star is still parked in Central Florida but we are both in Northern Virginia right now. Jonathan will be here for another week or so and I be here for two to three months. I’ve committed to a work project in the DC area and I will be staying with my family during this time.  We’ll be going back and forth to visit each other.

Yes, it’s cold here but it is slowly warming up. It is early March and the crocuses and daffodils are out in the yard. These flowers are harbingers of Spring!

The year 2011 will see a lot of changes for us. So far, it has been quite busy already. Our 11th wedding anniversary is tomorrow. We will attend a friend’s wedding in Bruceton, West Virginia the following day. We will have to miss another friend’s Memorial Service that is taking place in Falls Church, VA that same day. It’s too bad we cannot be in two places at once. On the one hand  there is hope and new beginning (wedding) and on the other there is death and sadness but there is hope too. That hope is the resurrection hope of a better future to come. Maintaining a balance and the right frame of mind can be a challenge sometimes when “life happens”.
