Saturday afternoon the temperatures reached into the 40’s, and I could not resist taking a walk in the woods. I was accompanied by my daughter and the bright, warm sun. As we walked through the slumbering woods, I rejoiced when I saw green sprouts popping up through some of the cold, wet snow patches. This week meteorologists are calling for ice and more snow, but I would not allow any of those predictions to dampen my spirits as I continued our walk. Though we choose not to walk very far into the woods, the fresh air and warm sun was refreshing compared to the hot, forced air of the house. We procrastinated heading back home, enjoying the sights and sounds of nature’s pulse.
