  1. Just beautiful, Jennifer. I love the comparison to winter and wondering how the frozen ground will ever give way to green grass and flowers in just a few short months…it reminds me of how I felt wondering when Jude would ever, ever walk. I thought it could never happen until one day, it did.
    Now, I hear his attempts at speech and wonder how he will ever, ever talk. But I know that one day, as improbable as the flowers poking up out of the snow, he will.
    Your “Avery and the purple crayon” was great, too.
    I don’t know how you crank ’em out like this, week after week! Amazing!

  2. Spring is so wonderful. I love the freshness in the air, the beauty poking out from the earth, and the freedom we regain after what seems like such a long winter.

    Your writing is beautiful as always. I can’t tell you how many times I read something you have written, and imagined what it is like in your world. I can easily envision your log cabin, the snow and hills, and the vast differences from my world.

    I don’t know if your life is anything at all like what I see by way of imagination, but I do know that it is those differences that draw me to want something more.

    It is the beauty your share with the world that draws me to pause, to imagine a dream, and I am so thankful you share your stories.
