Spring Has Sprung

I planted some seeds a couple of weeks ago and watched them sprout and grow into little shoots. When I saw little green tentacles sprouting out of the soil, I was so excited–like a little kid.

Moments where great pleasure is found in something so small are wonderful. I hope you have multiple moments like that.

Thank you for giving your time to stop and read my blog. I hope it encourages you to keep moving. Move and the body will be happier. And when you're moving you can hike, run, swim in Jell-O, race over non-Newtonian fluids, travel the world or build igloos--if that's your thing. If not, you can watch me do it. This is just a spot to try and feel good about life.

    We need to capture all the small moments we can and savor and memorize them. I have several to conjure and many more to come. 🙂

    What is it about watching something grow that makes it so exciting? Every day I check in on these sprouts and every day I’m stunned by the amount of change.
