we are lucky. here at the jam factory we try to be grateful and appreciate all that we have everyday. at times we struggle but some days it is so very easy – to look outside at the budding peach trees lining lady bird lake, to take the long way home on winding lamar boulevard with the windows open, to look down and see the possibilities in a dandelion flower. mother nature is a daily gift we can receive only if we pay attention. this time of year our area is abundant with harbingers heralding the coming of spring – taking notice is all that’s needed.
