Friday, 09 May 2008 - Mother Nature's fashion week

Dear God:

Today, I am thankful for Mother Nature's fashion week.

What a difference a week makes.

A week ago, deciduous trees, with their brownish gray bark and bare branches, still reminded me of winter. It snowed on May 1. Today, the trees invite a new story. After all, it's Mother Nature's fashion week.

Listen to the commentary as the trees swagger down the runway.

"These trees wear multitudes of tiny leaves tinted every possible shade of green. Think spiky clusters of shiny chartreuse brightening the drab winter brown palette."

"Covered head-to-toe in blossoms, graceful flowering trees show off their spring finery. Pastels blend beautifully with deeper shades of pink, peach, white and red. Think Hawaiian leis covering each branch. Think traditional cherry trees in full bloom. Think spring breezes carrying delicate petals near and far. "

For this blessing, I am grateful.
