True to form, March came in like a lion and leaves like a LAMB! If there was a season to be claimed, spring was Catherine’s: the animal mamas and their babies, robins pecking for worms, newly bloomed crocus, and finally - a touch of sun-kissed skin.
Every spring, I wish I could see the season through Catherine's eyes. And isn’t that the case for so many? To see with fresh eyes the wonder and magic that's all around us. It seems silly to admit amongst all that is happening but I wish we didn’t have to cancel this month’s "Sunday at the Sanctuary" workshop about PASTURE ANIMALS. This one was quintessential Catherine! I exhaled long in disappointment and yet, as I have come to learn, grace is there waiting. The grace is that we can now share a local offering with all of you!
While I will miss the smiling faces and the littles crouched in front of baby goats and sheep, my wish is this: may spring unveil her grandeur as we explore greener pastures and the animals who call it home. And may we all see with fresh eyes the beauty and majesty that shines across this world - together.
