From the Nursery Window

From the nursery window I've watched the world go by.
I've seen barren trees, brown and dull, grow beautiful green leaves, so lush and full.
The tree nearest the window was lifeless and dull, then it grew whirlybird seeds and aspen shaped leaves.
I've heard the wind howl, watched the rain pour down the window, and marveled at the lightening on the      horizon and jumped at the sound of thunder over head.
Flowers have come and gone.
I've told time by the fireflies dancing in the air.
I've laughed at the robins hopping across the street.
Sunrises have made me smile and reminded me of the blessings that are all around.
The leaves are turning now and leaving with the wind.
Soon the white stuff will start to fall and from the nursery window I will give thanks for the blessings that fill my home.
