Until I Know…

Spring is arriving…I’m not sure that it is time for it…by all accounts…it’s early…but…the leaves are popping out…even from yesterday till today…lots of new buds…
I’m ready for spring…ready for warmer weather…ready for flowers…ready for longer days…ready for bike rides…ready for fresh herbs…and veggies…I should celebrate…
And yet…I hold back…a bit of apprehension…stifling my joy…is it too soon…will a freeze kill my buds…will it get the strawberry crop…the peaches…the blueberries…all my favorites…and…the answer is…I don’t know…I won’t know…until…I know…
Bertha…says…that’s the way of life…I can celebrate…or…I can hold back…but…I’ll never know…until I know…
Today…I celebrate…
