"A first faint appearance" is the definition of a word I became curious about recently, because of spring, Easter, and the repopulation in the stores of those tremendously sugared marshmallows - PEEPS! They have gone way beyond the traditional yellow chicks, now in other shapes as well, like bunnies. But they're also in many colors, too - bright red, blue, violet, and pink as well. What makes spring a favorite season is the budding new growth seen everywhere, the return of chirping birds, and in Minnesota, anyway, the return of temperatures that don't frost bite your nose off! I wondered - what would the dictionary say the definition of peep is? And sure enough, I found a definition that beautifully fit spring - "a first faint appearance." What a shining ray of hope that offers! And it fits what happens in the grieving process also. What are some examples of a first faint appearance in grief?
