Our minds have unbelievable power over our bodies.
So Mother Spring finally left her door open just a crack so what was a farm girl who has a lot of stuff on her mind to do but squeeze her, been a long winter and she may have put on a few pounds and certainly those bulky coveralls don’t help, body through the tiny opening to see what Mother Spring has been hiding. As we know if she catches me she may slam that door shut so I must work quickly. It is Random 5 Friday with Nancy and here is what I discovered.
1- I watched as six deer stood by that open door and peered into the unknown as I fed the cows as quickly as I could. I did take a few minutes to get out and ask the girls when they would be giving me the gift of new calves and they replied “Ask Mother Spring, we are waiting, it’s her move.” I turned once again back to watch the deer off in the distance; one by one they squeezed their slim bodies through that door left a-jar. I had to hurry. I bid the girls goodbye and practically ran for that opening.
2- On squeezing through the, she could have left it open just a little wider, opening I could see how the deer had left tracks on top of the snow and I was so happy that the snow was strong enough to hold them which would mean I did not need those snowshoes still sitting behind the tractor seat, well unless there had been too many of those Red Velvet cupcakes for breakfast. I headed through the trees and in the direction of the stream I needed to see. I knew the deer drank and frolicked there when Mother Spring let them in.
3- The deer were there but as I slipped into the deep snow once again, I knew it was because of the cupcakes, I ultimately let out a sigh and they ran off enjoying the beautiful new world. I could then see the diamonds of ice I had hoped were there, my place of magic where everything seems possible and worries seem to disappear. I played with my camera and those diamonds mixed with My Pink Cadillacs all the time thinking I should hurry back before Mother Spring noticed the door was a-jar. I left there with a huge smile on my face. That was just what I needed.
4- I made it through the door back to semi-winter and I thought of my best friend since we were 5 years old BA who will be going through a door this week and she has no idea what lies on the other side and is understandingly a bit nervous. You can read her story here. I want to let her know she is going to come through this just fine because she is strong and loved. I was hoping that all my friends and her friends could leave a comment sending BA hugs and prayers as she walks through that door this week knowing she is not alone. Thank you everyone.
5- I am so happy that Mother Spring left that door a-jar, just a crack so I could get a glimpse into what lies ahead. I have always believed there is not one door that we find ourselves having to go through that will not give us some surprises and lessons even though we are not so sure what they are at the time, it is all in the way we look at it I guess. HUGS Love you BA.
