Rhubarb Season is Coming
Since our last newsletter, Spring has sprung! We still get some wet, sloppy snow during the month of March and April (and sometimes May), but the temperatures always rebound quickly into the mid-60’s and even 70’s.
And that means with spring comes all things, light, delicious, fresh and flavorful, and RHUBARB!

Inspiration of the Week
My mom sent this to me this week, so very good!
“In the central place of every heart there is a recording chamber. So long as it receives messages of beauty, hope, cheer – so long are you young.
But when the wires are all down and your heart is covered with the snows of pessimism and the ice of cynicism – then and only then have you grown old.”General Douglas MacArthur
And then she said it reminded her of this verse; which is one of my favorites too!
“Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report,, if there is any virtue and if there is any praiseworthy – meditate on these things.”Philippians 4:8
Let’s be the givers of beauty, hope, cheer and I will add, of thankfulness, gratitude, kindness, generosity and joy!
Thank you for being on this journey with me! Be sure to pop down below and comment to be a part of our final giveaway week!
With joy and hope,
