March Goals

There is no time like Spring,When life’s alive in everything.– Christina Rossetti, ‘Spring‘ Hello, March! Ah, I love this month: blooming buds, catkins on the trees, tulips making their debut—it puts a spring in my step! This change of season has so much to teach us about hope. After winter always comes spring. February was full of forward motion on my 2023 goals, waves of grief, and wildly exciting progress in my health. Grief, as I’m continuing to learn, is…
