Bittersweet Spring


It is such a gorgeous day today... spring has finally arrived (although I hate to jinx it). I just find this "turn of the season" very bittersweet. On the one hand, the sun, the fresh air, the new blooms and sounds and sights of birds and animals emerging from a long, dark winter is refreshing, almost hopeful and on the other hand it's terrifying. This new season is just another tangible reminder that the world insists on going forward - while ours has been turned upside down. There is new life all around me, new life I want to be sharing with Nicholas. Gosh, we had such different plans for this new season...
