Spring – the Season of New Hope

So spring is officially here. Not that you would no it if you looked out of the window here today. Winter is definitely having a last hurrah. We have had some beautiful spring days with gentle sunshine though, a taste of warmer days to come.

This is my favorite time in the garden. Abundant flowers, buds forming on the fruit trees and promise everywhere you look. I love that Spring is the season of hope. The children are enjoying time in the garden and the baby has discovered the delight of picking daisies when she’s at the park.

On the subject of hope – the support we have received from our local community to help with raising funds has been overwhelming and we now have enough to pay for the first part of Ashley’s operation. We will be heading off to Melbourne soon for a consultation with the surgeon. This whole experience has really affirmed for me that most people are inherently good and want to help others in need.

About embracingtheimperfections

I am a mother of six children. My children's ages range from 20 down to 1, so we are dealing with a lot of different ages and stages, not to mention a lot of different personalities. One of my twins has cerebral palsy so that adds yet another dimension to our lives. Along my journey so far I have learnt that life is far from perfect and that sometimes it's the imperfections that round out the harsh edges and give it a quality that is precious and unique. My love of the imperfect extends into my home life too. I love all things vintage, hand crafted, home grown and home cooked. I love to be creative and I love learning. I am definitely not a minimalist! I aspire to be tidy and organized but I am realizing that with six children, three cats and a crazy black Labrador that is probably beyond my capabilities, so I embrace the beautiful chaos that ensues!
