Grateful: Spring Things

Here’s a short sweet Grateful post today.

I’m most grateful for spring things lately. Here are some, beautiful and messy and good.

This post about the history of Earth Day, which reminds me of my dad, and how he was my hero when I was 10. He hosted the festivities on the very first Earth Day in our town, at our house.


The compost heap, which we turned a couple of weeks ago, ripe with life and possibility.

Many other spring things make me grateful every day, but I’ll share just these with you for now. Here’s hoping you have spring things to delight in, too.
