The past couple weeks has been Tulip Time in Topeka. The gardens in our old neighborhood at Ward-Meade Park have been filled with color. Walking the paths puts a person in such a positive frame of mind it's the perfect place to make a list of things for which I am thankful.
The gift of sight and the riot of colors in the garden.
The rain that has softened the dry, inhospitable ground of a month ago.
The final quarter of the school year and the push towards the summer break.
The joy of anticipation as I begin to fill the calendar with events coming up this summer.
Good news...a dental position for my daughter, and a separate thankful that the position is in Topeka and she will soon be home. In other good news...acceptance to a summer study program at Oxford for my son.
There is so much goodness in my life right now, it required an explosion of color to convey how thankful I feel.
