Spring days.....

Spring shows what God can do with a drab and dirty world.
Virgil A. Kraf
A day best called astonishing. A day that brings me face to face with the goodness in life. A spring day just full of sounds and sights and pleasures. Sounds of bats on balls and colors shrieking against the drabness of winter like little voices in a kindergarten classroom. A spring day filled with yapping little robins...full stomachs and shiny coats from an abundance of earthworms from heavy spring rains. A sunny day blown in across the prairie with the sun warming our heads....and tempting three little children to beg to take off their shoes just for a moment and wiggle their toes in the greenness of the grass they're running through. A day for seeing the future in the tiny green buds on the autumn blaze maple the tiny red buds on the redbud the bulging almost blooms amongst the tulip leaves. A day for wasting in the company of three little sojourners...kites in hands, in hot pursuit of a swing set, some spring flowers and the belief that days like this should find us all tired, happy and smelling like dirt! What greater simple joy in life than a spring day well wasted with Grandma?!

Another good one. I loved the way you described the colors shrieking aginist the drabness of winter like little voices in a kindergarten classroom. Sounds like Grandma had the most fun wasting time with Grandchildren.
Peace be with you.
