Spring is Near

This past week as I left work and walked to my car, I looked at this tree.  I’ve seen it before, and I like the branch pattern. But something new caught my attention.  Look closely.  You see the little white flowers starting to grow?  Reminds me of our own lives.  We’re sometimes so bombarded by stresses that sometimes we lose sight of the small positives that signal some grand positives and we feel like giving up. Don’t forget to look a little closer. Yay! Spring is near! 

“Never cut a tree down in the wintertime. Never make a negative decision in the low time. Never make your most important decisions when you are in your worst moods. Wait. Be patient. The storm will pass. The spring will come.”

-Robert H. Schuller

About Claudia

Hi!! My name is Claudia. Blogging is sort of a creative/therapeutic activity for me. I blog about being a wife, mother, student, caseworker, and simply being human through photography, words, music, and blog challenges. Mental illness has also been part of my life, so you'll sometimes find mental health and psychology in my posts. I've dealt with anxiety and depression most of my life. And my husband has bipolar disorder. My hope is that I may show readers that it is possible for people to live positive, productive lives despite mental illness, challenges, or frustrations.
