Last week, working on the front, the trees were barely budding. On Wednesday, I stayed inside because it was so cold, it was like all nature exploded. When I opened the curtain on Thursday morning, I was greeted by my 2 front trees in full leaf. I was surprised to see all the leaves out, and it made my heart sing.
This morning, I looked out my kitchen window and reveled in God’s creation.
While the house will always have projects that need to tackled, I can look out our back window and see a green field framed by trees. It helps me feel like I live closer to the country than I do. This is one of the biggest reasons we bought the house. I hope that the property behind us never sells, so I will have my “bit of country”.
