Springing (U.B.C. – Day 6)

The world looks a little different today.  The sun is shining, the sky is bright, and temperatures are on the rise.  My eldest step-daughter’s boyfriend proposed to her yesterday!  They two are a perfect match and I couldn’t be happier for them.  I’m looking forward to getting to know him and his family better now that they are officially on the march to marriage.  Perhaps she and I can finally put aside our differences, as well.

Most important of all in my mind, though, is that my spring flowers are poking through the topsoil, proving to me that after this long and horrendous winter, spring is actually coming.
