When I was home with my daughter when she was little, we spent a lot of time walking around the neighborhood. There was a retired gentleman at the end of our street who we always visited. One spring day we were talking about coins, clothing items, and coins we have discovered on our walk. He chuckled and said, “Spring uncovers the sins of the winter.”
Today while I was out at recess duty, I noticed mittens, gloves, socks, and trash that had been uncovered by the melting snow. I thought back to my neighborhood walk and Steve. Spring has uncovered the sins of our winter.
