These always remind me that spring is in the air and summer around the corner.
A large tree stood next to our bus stop as a kid. This tree has been marked with predictions of middle school crushes, carved right into it’s bare trunk. I just realized today that I spent those days with my sister, Summer, and Joy. What an amazing childhood I was blessed to experience. I was surrounded by true Joy and Summer who were always bright and sunny. As well as the companionship of a sister.
I don’t think I can look at a helicopter seed and not be reminded of those days on a long country road where a massive tree stands full of our history…and our embarrassing crushes.
