“If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant: if we did not sometimes taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome.”
[Meditations Divine and Moral]”
― Anne Bradstreet, The Works of Anne Bradstreet

We have had a difficult winter, but spring is around the corner! We have a little more sunshine, birds are singing in the morning, and new growth is happening in our gardens. We may be apart, but please know that we are here for you! Take care!
