In my favorite poem by Robert Frost, Nothing Gold Can Stay, he reminds us that like the seasons of nature, life is one season melting into another, and quickly fading away. This is my attempt to document each season in my life and my family.

Spring Thoughts

On the way home from taking Kyra to school today, I was looking at the beauty all around me. Blue, cloudless skies. Budding trees. White, yellow, and purple blossoms everywhere I looked. And I thought, “It’s kind of ironic to be surrounded by new life while my heart is wrapped up in a new death.”

I have thought about you and your heartache, ever since Barbara first linked to your situation.

I understand, I really do. When life is springing everywhere you look, you are reminded that you aren’t a part of it any more. Still, there comes a time when the hope is greater than the despair. I hope you find that hope soon.
