After death, there is life... After winter, there is spring... (April 2013)

This artist has had an interesting (to say the least) March 2013.
Buds bursting forth after a long
cold winter at Roberstville State Park.
I am blessed that April 2013 (despite any rough spots I will face) is already shaping up to be a good next chapter in my life.
Rain drop hanging from a tree in Pacific, MO.
See the tiny tree reflection in the droplet? :)
Nothing like a little walk in the woods at Robertsville State Park to remind me that after the rain, there is growth -- after the snow melts, green is revealed -- after loss, there is gain. And through it all, I have a higher power watching out for me.
I noticed I was being watched &
started a staring contest with this
wise soul. Always comforting to know that
someone wise (I'd believe that's God)
is looking out for your best interests. 
Life, death, rebirth, gain, loss: it's all a cycle. It's that ride called life and it's a ride I have no desire to stop anytime soon.

Yes, there may be storms...
My rain-soaked umbrella...
However, once those storms pass and the clouds break beauty remains...
Clouds breaking to reveal a beautiful Spring Sky.
... and we have to remember storms bring forth life.
This beauty caught my eye on
Spicebrush Trail at Robertsville State Park.
Last, but certainly not least, it's so important to remember we can't stop reaching for the sky - for our dreams - no matter how rough some storms may be.
