Brighter Days

As the days lighten, the first flowers start to emerge.

The snowdrops have been joined by the first crocus blooms, if not quite open yet.

Seeing snowdrops reminds me of a lovely friend who sadly died last year. As I walked into his funeral, I saw the first snowdrop of last year pushing through the soil. I always think of him when I see a snowdrop now.

I’m not the only one who misses him. A good friend of his has set up a fundraiser for defibrillators, to help others avoid his fate; and his business partner is donating a percentage of profits from a special blend of coffee in his name.

Seeing the kindnesses flow from the loss of my friend echoes the hope of the snowdrop pushing through the soil. I miss my friend but it’s good to see his name live on through kind gestures.
