“In the Spring, at the end of the day, you should smell like dirt.”
Canadian writer, Margaret Atwood said it and for all us who have been a little down lately from too much cancer, too much loss, too many trips down memory lane, it’s time to play in the dirt. It’s one of the best ways I know, to find hope again. It shakes off the winter chill that settles into our hearts. Planting for Spring is our way to “lift” our surroundings.
If we’ve learned any thing in our many cancer journeys, it’s that we need to appreciate each day. It can change so quickly and when it does, we look back and realize how much more we could have squeezed out of each day. And if we were lucky enough to be a part of another persons life, it’s time to remember the great days we spent sharing that life together.
Spring can do that for all of us.
