The Beauty of … Nature @josieriviera, #mgtab

I love this time of year. The earth is emerging warm and bright after winter. Only a couple weeks ago, the trees in my yard were brown and leafless. Now there’s a wide variety of green shades, and far too many to count.

The breeze is warm and the days are longer. The sweet smell of fresh-cut grass fills the air.

Also, many familiar creatures have returned to frequent my yard. Just this week I have seen dozens of different birds at their feeders or lining the deck rails waiting for their turn.

Bumblebees and butterflies are gracing us with their presence too.

I love to explore nature and enjoy seeing wildlife in their natural habitats.

The Beauty of … Hope @josieriviera, #mgtab

Spring is a time for renewal, a time for hope. I am sure I am not alone in having never expected this pandemic to go on for such a long time, or to face so many of the other ‘unprecedented’ events that we faced in 2020.

In all of this though, I see hope.

Hope that this vaccine will provide us a level of safety from COVID-19.

Hope that we will seek to understand our fellow man on a deeper level.

Hope that the world will explore solutions to these unbelievable natural disasters.

Hope that we can listen and try to understand our fellow humans.

Hope that we can be compassionate to those who may not be as fortunate as we are.

Hope that we can bring the best of ourselves to face the worst of what has happened. Together we can bring hope to brighten our world.

What are your hopes? Please leave your comments below.

Here’s to us and our brighter future!
