everything is in the process of becoming


He said it well last night on TV. "I love Spring. Everything is in the process of becoming."

I was outside most of the day, basking in the sunshine & shorts-weather, after what has seemed like a year of Winter here in NY.
We bought this house last May. It stood out among the others for many reasons: tucked away at the end of a cul-de-sac, large, dense tree-lined backyard providing the illusion of living in the middle of nowhere. The trees were full & green like the shrubs in the flower beds, teaming with colorful hydrangeas & rose bushes. I started to doubt that it ever looked that way.

I'm having a hard time seeing it. 
How can this become....that?

Time.
Patience.
Seasons change.
Bringing with them new wonders and trials too.
You can't see it?
Wait.
In due time.
You will.

I'm quite sure I believe in the proverbial "good things come to those who wait" but my inclinations are far more along the lines of: good things come to those who go get them.
Wait?
I'd rather do & try & create & figure out how to make it happen, like now.

But, something about my backyard has given fresh perspective on the value of time & waiting.
