Spring Plantings in the Waiting

Janie Reading Her Favorite Book

The other day, I was driving in an area that wasn’t familiar to me.  I ended up driving down a street that dead ended through the gates and into a company parking lot.  Before I got that far, I was able to turn into an elementary school parking lot.  As I circled through the drive, I looked up and on …

And when you find them, You always know them by sight and heart alone, You always grow a little bit taller in your soul, And you know you have been blessed just to know them.
