Gentle sign of Spring

Dear Mom,

They aren't as exciting as those first croci, or as obvious as the forsythia in bloom, but there is just something about pussy willow branches that make my heart sing.  

We had our first spring thunderstorm this morning and I came home from watercolor class to nap under a quilt while the heavy rains fell.

What I love is near at hand.
