In the middle of the miserable third wave of the pandemic in Ontario, this sign went up across from a retirement home just north of Steeles. It means "when spring arrives life will be warmer." For the residents inside that building, it was a reminder from their loved ones that things will get better, we just have to hang on. What joy to now feel beautiful sunshine, see the province slowly come back to life, and hear daily reports of Covid cases under 300. This sign reminds me we have to keep hanging on and holding close the ones we love most, through both the dark, cold seasons and the warm ones.
