“We live…but for the simple end of being happy; nothing for the present hour is worthy of man’s infinite capacity save to imbibe the warm smile of heaven and sympathize with the reviving earth.”
I woke this morning to the sound of a mourning dove cooing outside my bedroom window. The sound always transports me back to the delicious summer days of my childhood and my maternal grandmother’s home with the large pine trees that overhung the white picket fence and sheltered the statue of the Blessed Virgin. Mourning doves always seemed to be roosting in those trees and as we would step out the back gate of that shady bower to take our walk through the neighborhood, the song of the doves would float out on the air, gently bidding us fare-thee-well and see you soon!
I couldn't think of a pleasanter way to begin the day than with that lovely childhood memory.
My wish for you today and every day of the fair month of April is that you are able to count your blessings and find they far outweigh your troubles!

"And Spring arose on the garden fair,
Like the Spirit of Love felt everywhere;
And each flower and herb on Earth's dark breast
rose from the dreams of its wintry rest."
~~Percy Bysshe Shelley~~
