New Growth

Oh, give us pleasure in the flowers today;
and give us not to think so far away
as the uncertain harvest; keep us here
all simply in the springing of the year.

Oh, give us pleasure in the orchard white,
like nothing else by day, like ghosts by night;
and make us happy in the darting bird
that suddenly above the bees is heard,
the meteor that thrusts in with needle bill,
and off a blossom in mid air stands still.

For this is love and nothing else is love,
the which it is reserved for God above
to sanctify to what far ends He will,
but which it only needs that we fulfil.

A Prayer in Spring  -Robert Frost

I found out last week that Owl and Twine was chosen to be placed on voiceBoks Top 50 Mom Blogs list.  I was at a park with the little ones and friends when I read the email, slipping the phone back into my bag until I got home to pull it up on my computer, as if something about the tiny screen minimized the possibility.  I couldn't help but think, me?   

And, well, I'll just say Thank You.  

There's some voting going on over there for the top 10 blogs, and such.  If you'd like to vote for Owl and Twine, you can click on the link below or the box in the sidebar, and then click the Facebook "Like" box.  It appears you have to chum up a lot of Facebook support, which is something I'm not very good at, but I do truly appreciate your support and kindness towards this little space I love so much.

Here's the link:   Vote for Owl and Twine!

Now please, go eat gobs of jellybeans and chocolate eggs.  Happy Easter!  Happy New Growth!
