What a wonderful time of year. We’re half way through January and the tips of the snowdrops are peeping through the frozen earth. It’s a miracle!. The soil is very cold yet these delicate blades push their way up. The daffodils are also beginning to show. More miracles! Buds are beginning to show on my lilac bushes; I just hope its not too early and the frost will attack.

I’m not a person who usually chooses a word for the year but if I did it would be the word ‘Hope.’ Hope that we have more of the pandemic struggles behind us than in front of us. Hope that we can get back to the celebrations and gatherings that have languished. I’m a person that needs people. And hope for healing for those who have struggled financially, mentally and emotionally. Hope for those who have lost hope.

Sounds like a call for more miracles!
