The big blue truck has been parked for the better part of a week now. Fortunate is the one who has the opportunity to be sequestered in the Appalachian Mountains as the Spring season comes on. Even more so when that happens to coincide with my day off. I awoke to sound of the rain ebbing away softly into parts unknown beyond the ridge line. The window of my bedroom relays the golden smile of the morning sun and the birds begin to join the morning chorus.
As my mountain awakes to the new day I make my way to my woodland sanctuary on the edge of my property. Several of the robins take to the lower branches as I breech the invisible barrier between yard and forest. The ground is carpeted with life. Small flowers look up and smile where just 24 hours ago only the promise of something that might be held the ground. Among the new arrivals is one that’s not normally present this early. Geranium maculatum or wild geranium. I normally don’t see them until we’re well into April. And, this one seems to be the only one right now. But I know that where one thrives others are breaking through the leaf litter yet unseen. Blessings are like that. They’re coming wether you see them or not. But if you just look around you’ll find them when they arrive.
