Spring is finally here in my hometown and here in full bloom!

I love spring; it's hands down my favorite time of year. The green grass contrasted against the blue sky; the bulbs in bloom; the trees opening into new leaves - the earth bursts with new life and anything seems possible.

Of course, it shouldn't take the blush of a pink tulip or the sight of the first dogwood blossoms to make me feel that way; every day is a chance to start anew.

When my kids have a bad day (and oh boy, do they all!), I always tell them when I'm tucking them into bed that when the sun comes up tomorrow, it's a whole new day to be their best self. A new day to try again.

Spring days come and bring newness to our world, but every day is a new beginning.

And every day is a gift - even those rainy, muddy, bills-to-pay, whiny kid days.
