Awakening to Spring

branch of snowy may

Here's a branch of snowy May, a branch the fairies gave me.

-English May song

Right now, I'm loving the opportunity to experience this springtime as though it were my first. Living in our house, with its yard and gardens, has opened my senses to spring in so many new ways.

So many things to be thankful for this lovely May:

::Gifts of posies from my children almost every day

::The slow warmth of the spring sun on my back and face

::Fragrant wafts from our neighbor's spicy-sweet linden tree

::The pleasure of having spent a morning working in the yard

What about you? What are you enjoying and feeling thankful for this mid-May?
