Spring is upon us and in full bloom. With spring comes hope and renewal, a brand new season filled with new opportunities.
Outside my living room window, there is a stunning double-blossomed cherry tree full of gorgeous pink blooms. The tree is exceptionally beautiful this year. However, I wonder if the tree seems more beautiful because this past winter was part of a long and difficult season in my life. God has led me through the darkness to the beauty of this new season, and I have found a greater appreciation for life because of walking through some difficult things in a season of pruning.
It has been almost a year since my momma went to Heaven. Although the loss of my momma has been sad and painful because I miss her so much, her death has taught me many things. One of the greatest things I have learned is to stop and appreciate what is right in front of me and to enjoy the little things in life more.
