Blog Your Blessings: Cherry Blossoms
Cherry blossoms. Delicately splendid, sweetly scented cherry blossoms are this week's blessing. After Dell and I awoke in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, last week, we stepped into a world filled with cherry blossoms. Cherry blossoms festooned the street like a spring party and tinted the otherwise dull morning a soft pink.
After we came back to Connecticut, we stepped into our old familiar city and there found streets lined with cherry blossoms. Their ephemeral beauty makes my heart ache somehow. I wish they would stay around longer.
They were pretty. A pretty world, even for a short while, is more than enough blessing for me.
