Isn't that what they've been awaiting? That all-elusive...ever-intangible feeling? That one that will tell them that without a question..or without a doubt - that they have found what it is they've been seeking?

Sunshine and warmth. Laughter and light. Springtime.


It hasn't gone un-noticed...these leaves that are budding and blooming. A new season..a fresh  new start. It's funny how nature just knows. She knows not to look somewhere out there and beyond to seek out whatever she is needing. She knows - that what she needs..she has within.

And - as they turn themselves to the sun and the sky...as they open themselves to what spring offers..I can see and hear that smile within..that one that cries out 'happy-ness'.
