Smell of Spring

Dear God,

You are so creative. I love that you made a season like spring. The flowers are wonderful. The sunny days are energizing. The greening grass is encouraging. The warmth melts the gloom of winter.

And to top off all the glorious things that happen in spring, You gave me Abigail. She delights in playing outside. In her sandbox. Running through the yard to slam into the fence. Pushing any number of wheeled toys around. Playing in the rotting leaves that never made it to the compost pile. Soaking up the smell of spring.

Her hair saves it for me. Thank you that I have the privilege of sitting before bed with a girl whose hair smells of little girl and spring.
