In these uncertain times when people all over the world are suffering immeasurably, the only thing that is giving me hope and joy is nature. The skies look clearer, the birds are chirping – telling us to hang in there – and flowers are blooming everywhere. For this week’s Sunday Seven I want to write about the beauty and hope that comes with the arrival of spring, so we all remember that even the toughest and darkest of times are followed by spring.
