This time of year is all about renewal.
As April brings us showers that start nature’s renewal, May brings on renewal in full force, as most of the northern hemisphere begins to bloom and the cold snowy days become a fast, distant memory. Trees and flowers begin to bud, while animals throughout nature awaken their worlds with new offspring. It’s a time of joy and celebration as the world we know readies itself to being again. As the northern hemisphere starts its parade into spring, the southern hemisphere begins its dance deeper into fall – yet another type of renewal.
No matter where you are in the world, the seasons constantly remind us that change is our only constant, and that renewal is inevitable, no matter how harsh the winter has been.
With a new season of Culinary Corner @ WYE the network prepping to begin filming (FINALLY!) later this year, and the services overhaul in full swing at WYE, we’re gearing up for a very busy rest of the year around these parts. Feeling blessed and grateful, the abundance of renewal is also flowing into my personal life as well.
As my little family and I get our renewal in full swing, TJ, Jameson, and Esther remain a breath of fresh air (and sometimes frustration – but only in the cutest sense of the word), continuing to learn new things and chase curiosity. TJ is settling into a slower routine as his fur begins to show his age, while Esther (always so full of energy) continues to be eager to learn new things and carry out any assignment given to her with gusto, and Jameson remains content to gallop and hop (yes, hop!) his way through the backyard with as much joy as he can muster, in between his regularly scheduled napping. The breath of life that is in my home these days, brings a new and fresh outlook in all things. That’s what new life does – it’s a breath of fresh air that blows in and stays just long enough to recharge, rejuvenate and renew you. It arrives like the Calvary, just when needed, usually right after a difficult period, and reminds us that the sun does indeed shine again … that there is hope … that there is purpose … that there is renewal.
Meanwhile, back at the office, our internal revamp continues with systems upgrades that will allow us to serve you better as we continue the revamp of our procedures that will, in the end, provide us with more tools and processes to help make your life easier. We’re also on a mission to help you renew what’s on your dinner table with a fresh new meal idea in this month’s Quick ‘n Easy segment. And we’re celebrating all things flower this month too, including our Wednesday afternoon reading series focusing on the leaders and institutions that helped shine a spotlight on agriculture, as well as a special Friday series covering the history of a few of today’s most popular flowers. Lastly, but far from least, this month we celebrate those that define human renewal – mothers.
There’s so much in store this month, and we can’t wait to share it with you. So stay tuned, stay centered … just stay … and let the renewal BEGIN!
See you next month. Until then, be willing...
