The Spring of Our Lives

It is easy on a magnificently warm, sun-filled day like today, flowers newly abloom, to believe spring has fully arrived.

And then we have a cold day. A grey day. A rainy day. And the spring we knew had made it seems to be missing again. This is life.

Sometimes in our work we need to remind students that today, the immediate, is temporary. A situation for a student may seem inescapable—a cold set in—but tomorrow is still ahead with new promise. We must be resilient and hopeful and resourceful and know assuredly the spring of life is coming, however difficult to see in the moment.

On those sunny days, we can savor the longer light, bask in the radiant colors, and thrill in spring once more, while being blessed for the journey.
