Spring Has Sprung…
Spring has a way of sneaking up on us – it is only with the arrival of the crocus’s first green shoots that we realize winter has faded and it is time to get excited about the many rites of spring. I don’t know what the weather’s like where you live, but I can say for sure it has been cold where I live so far this spring. But it is warming up and the sunny skies and warmer days are giving way to the excitement of many spring activities. This weekend is the 139th running of the Kentucky Derby, a true spring holiday in my state. Then beginning on Monday is another one of those rites of spring we always look forward to, “National Nurses Week” (May 6-12).
