Every season has its good points and its bad. With fall we have the beautiful colors and the cool crisp air, but it also can bring in the dampness and mold that irritates those who suffer with allergies. In the winter we have the beauty of the snow as it gently falls to blanket the earth and the sparkling of the ice as it forms on the trees, but it can become unbearably cold and the snow and ice can cause power outages and traffic accidents. Spring brings our trees back to their glorious shades of green and the flowers liven up the scenery with their vibrant colors and fill the air with their fragrance, but spring rains can become dangerous at times causing flooding that can damage and endanger lives. The summer is a time for fun in the sun, picnics and family outings when the children are out of school, but summer heat can be devastating to crops and people who don’t do well in extreme conditions like those caused by the higher temperatures. I do find that the promises of new birth, the joy of seeing those first daffodils pop up out of the ground, the sounds of the birds singing as they announce the coming of spring are just too beautiful not to simply be joyous about their coming. I like to celebrate each season as it comes and for now let’s embrace all the joys that spring can bring.
Several Dennard residents have been suffering with illness and the winter months tend to be slow and depressing in themselves so I hope the warmer temperatures and the promise of spring helps heal our spirits and our bodies.
