A beautiful arrival

You know they are on their way!

At this time of year I am always on bloom watch to try to get as close as possible to seeing when the Cherry blossom trees are at their peak. It's an awesome sight.

It was a lot easier when we lived in DC and I didn't have to plan a weekend. Now I really have to pay attention. It can be a total bummer to go all the way down there and the blooms aren't ready for their big debut.

Cherry blossoms are some of the simple pleasures in life. I think of it as God's way of personally renewing my faith every year; my own signal to remind me that there is much life to live and still so much good to notice. I hope they do that for you too.
