Enduring with Joy

Life has been a bit of a whirl lately. I am spending most of April in Oregon while Dutch is in India. We girls have temporarily exchanged our bathing suits for galoshes and winter coats. The morning we arrived was gray and cold; as we turned onto our street, gray clouds clustered above the triangular tips of all the houses; gray drops dripped from the tips of all the leaves of the trees; gray sidewalks shivered with rain; later, as we crept outdoors, the puddles trembled hello. When we reached the park Audrey gasped. "Follow the moss path!" she said to Evie, and they jogged ahead of me. I haven't been able to catch up with them since.
