I love spring. I must admit, with the weather we’re having in Northern VA as I write this post, I’m wondering if we’re going to skip spring, and jump from winter straight into summer eventually. The family and I were in South Carolina last week, and it was such a joy to see green grass, gorgeous dogwoods and other beautiful trees, and fresh flowers poking their heads through the leftovers of winter…that new beginning that springtime brings seems to put a bounce in everyone’s step. I know it certainly did mine.
As I write this, I’ve just finished doing a little reading on the upcoming trip my daughter and I will be taking to Togo, West Africa, and what’s going on over there right now. If I’m being honest, Togo is consuming every inch of my heart these days. The burden is so great I really have a hard time adequately explaining it, so I’ve not done a great job thus far. I honestly wish I knew why, and I don’t say that in any way to sound cold or indifferent.by
