It’s easy to look around this time of year in Michigan and be reminded of the cycles of the seasons. The birds have reappeared, the flowers are blooming, the trees are budding, and while it is still very cold most days there are hints of warm days coming.
Living in Cameroon, this was always something I missed. While there are seasonal changes and wet/dry changes — the cycle of winter to spring to summer to fall is missing there. And we’ve often mentioned that time seems to stand still in Cameroon, partially for this reason, I believe.
But what a joy it is the see each year.
This time last year some of us relocated back in Michigan, and it was during this springtime that we saw some of these same changes. One year anniversaries often bring back memories, or are good ways to mark progress.
