I can't believe my daughter is 20 today! We are celebrating! (This picture was taken in Venice in 2014.)
What are YOU celebrating this week?
We all need to take time to smell the flowers along the way ... no matter how busy or stressed out we are. (Or in this case, it's fine to enjoy the dandelions - great food for bees!)
April Fool's Day has been and gone already: it seems to be the only day of the year that we all question what we read on the Internet... :-)
Still cold here, but some brave flowers are blooming anyway.
To paraphrase Charles Dickens, March is one of those months (at least here in Sweden) 'when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold'.
But to tell you the truth, after a severe snowstorm last week, winter is still making its last stand.
In the words of Seneca:
"Wherever there is a human being, there is an opportunity for kindness."
And kindness is a way of making love visible.
Hope you are all doing well and making the most of the light. I loved Amanda Gorman's poem 'The Hill We Climb'.
When day comes we step out of the shade,
aflame and unafraid,
the new dawn blooms as we free it.
For there is always light,
if only we're brave enough to see it.
If only we're brave enough to be it.
