Thoughts of connections come to mind when I sit in the early morning hours and sip my coffee. Connections to the earth allow us to appreciate nature and enrich our lives in so many ways. Connections to each other bond us closer and help us to fill our hearts with joy. Let’s put strengthening our connections on the to-do list this spring.
