Blessings in Shades of Green

Original post: April 9, 2021. Edited.

My dad listened to Rod McKuen a lot when I was growing up. I have a Rod McKuen playlist on my phone. Listening to it takes me back to a good place in time and gives me peace.

There’s a particular song I really like called Blessing in Shades of Green. Today it makes me think of all of the green signs of spring.

I took pictures around my house. There are so many shades of green, and some with brilliant colors attached, like purples and yellows. And even white…if you appreciate dandelions like I do. Nature is such a gift.

As I write, I think of other shades of green that I consider to be blessings in my life. And right away I think of the eyes of two of my daughters. With six children, we have a variety of eye color. All beautiful. Today, though, we are focusing on beautiful shades of green.

Blessings in shades of green. What a lovely, happy color. 💚
