Finding Stability in an Unstable Time

While some things have changed forever, we can always count on the sights and smell of spring and summer coming.

Being fortunate to live in Colorado, I recently watched spring unfold. Flowers are blooming, trees opening their leaves, and fields turning that particular color of green. For me, it brings back memories of growing up in Connecticut and watching Dogwoods and Forsythia bloom early—even before their leaves come out. Living in Georgia after college, I watched the Dogwoods and Azaleas shower the world with color and their sweet smell.

Today, many of man’s systems are momentarily broken. It will take time to fix them. It won’t happen overnight. Those who have lived through past recessions and 9/11 know that not everything will come back. Time gives us the chance to speculate about what will change and how much it will affect us.

However, we can be thankful to count on some things not changing, such as the arrival of spring that leads to summer, and all the sights, sounds, and smells that come with it. We can be thankful that we can still take the time to be amazed by them.
