These are the brave ones of several days ago who were standing with bowed heads when I went to greet them.  Today, with two days of temperatures in the high 60’s they raised their faces upward and rejoiced to greet me as well, as I greeted them.  We are old friends and look forward to seeing one another every year. 

I am hoping that their sweet faces are not mundane to anyone but instead, I hope they are enjoyed for the sunny, bright and lovely presence they grace us with helping us to cheer the day.
