Spring has sprung!
The sun today is strong enough that I can feel it's healing warmth deep within my skin as I sat in the car on my way to work.
As his usual, Ken took the lake route today thus giving me a peek at the new wildlife making its way into the open. We saw among other things five eagles perched on the tree along the lake. The ducks and geese swimming and resting after a tedious flight from I don't know where. All I see are flocks of them flying in from every directions.
The birds are chirping and it seem to me that the snow is already a distant memory as green grass and trees will soon be ready to burst forth their glorious shade of green.
I saw chickadees flitter around on one tree, bluejays bop in and out of sight, crows fly overhead and the sparrows seem to take such utter pleasure doing what they do best, singing.
This is beauty.
This is peace and tranquility.
This is one of those moments that sustain me through the long winter days and nights and I am so grateful that even with all of life's up and downs, twists and turns, I am able to see the beauty of a new life and truly appreciate all that IS around me.
There is a newness of life in the Spring air. I can smell it and hear it in the sounds of the birds that have returned.
This is one of my Forever Moments.
So I will watch and enjoy this moment for as long as it remains as it is right now. I am sure there are many things I would be doing today.
But those can wait. This will not.
Tomorrow it will not be the same. Tomorrow the colors will be just a bit more mature. The birds melody will be slightly different as different birds flit in and out of this one place on earth and the left over snow may melt overnight.
So, there I was inside the car with Ken sitting quietly while watching National Geographic from the car's window.
