turtlesYou no doubt remember how much I love the sight of the Bickley’s Pond turtles sunning on the bank that edges our back yard. Today was clearly Day One of Spring–for there they were shell-to-shell, necks craned skyward. I took a moment to enjoy the view, thinking about two things:

1. How nice it was to feel the sunshine on my face
2. What it must be like for those turtles to feel it, too, after months and months beneath the muck and mud of the pond.

Oh, yes. It is time to celebrate Spring!



A little Daily Grace in your inbox? I say yes!

It’s my hope this little spot on the internet will be for you a place of quiet and reflection, a source for inspiration, and a reminder there’s beauty all around—we simply need to keep our hearts open to see it.
