Reflections at the End of May

Carol A. Hand


at the close of May

My spirit will breathe easier

because you decided to bloom today

despite the gray skies that

came our way



Crabapple Tree – May 29, 2017



About Carol A. Hand

What matters are not the titles I’ve held or university degrees I earned or the size of a house or bank account. It’s really what I’ve learned from ordinary people like me whom I’ve met along the way. They taught me to live with gratitude and give thanks for each new day.

    • Thank you for your kind words, Maria. The crabapple is very old and was struggling when I moved in 5 and a half years ago. I removed all the old nails and metal, added healthier soil all around it, and have had tree surgeons trim broken branches when necessary. Every spring when it blooms, it’s a precious gift…
