Spring is in the Air
Everything is reluctantly peeking out of the ground creating a huge contrast with the lingering winter carpet of greyness. Soon we will be enjoying tulips, hyacinth, amongst the crocus already appearing in vivid shades of yellow, white and purple. The leaves of bachelor buttons and lavender with muted tones brace the bank promising later blooms. Pussy willows largely welcome spring birds who are searching for berries remaining on bushes, near low-lining paved steps. Soon, as the debris has been cleared, new mulch will be placed to compliment the grass that will appear, green and full. Decks will need to be bleach-washed to remove all the green mold and outdoor furniture will be placed, welcoming friends and family. Of course, by that time, the little black bugs, May flies will be antagonizing those who wish to recline, while drinking in the sunshine or reading a book. Playful birds, who have been around for awhile, are now building or finding nests. This weekend, I opened windows for the first time and started changing curtains, putting my flannel sheets away. Spring is in the air. That is what I like about New England, the four seasons. I'm more than ready for "new life" and the beauty it brings. Somehow, we all mesh together, a natural order of things, with a balance that never grows old. Do you recall the wonderful Mother's Day Flowers last year? It will be here soon! I can't wait to share happy days with my family and friends.. Pascha (Easter) is on the 24th. of April, where we will be reminded that all life comes through Christ. We will sing: "Let us arise at break of day, and instead of myrrh offer the Master a hymn. Thus shall we witness Christ, the Sun of righteousness, dawning over all life."Taken from the service book of Holy Satruday Evening, Holy Week and Easter.

Many will wonder how I came up with this very unusual title. Who in their right mind would want to blog on this topic. A mom, grandmother, or anyone who cares for small children, worldwide. What if I told you to kiss the boo-boo is the "cure all" for all ages? That has been my philosophy for and the basis for this blog. What am I, I am a boo-boo kisser. I make it all better. I am sharing my thoughts and views, not intended to offend any reader, but to express the lessons life has taught me. These are solely my experiences and reflect my feelings! Looking for others to share as well...
