As I was standing near the cookstove, tending the maple sap today, I noticed my ally Maple’s reflection in the pan of sap…
When we open our senses to a new ally, we begin to see so many new ways.
We had a large maple branch fall and this is what we found inside of it..
Our maple tree is not only providing us with sap for syrup, but fuel for the fire, home for our feathered bird friends and furred squirrel friends… and much for me to reflect upon as well…
And my special daily buddy, grandson Dylan turned 5 yesterday. I volunteer in his preschool class once a month. Friday we celebrated his birthday. Proud Grandma when we were coming in from playing on the playground and he stopped the whole line of wee ones to bend over and pick something up.. then proudly announced as he held it up high..”The first chickweed of the year! “
