While parts of the nation are finally finished with a snowy winter, it’s about time to celebrate spring. The sun is shining and the days are warm enough for short sleeves, shorts and flip-flops (at least here in Florida.) Azalea’s are blooming, which means other plants are starting to bloom as well.
I’ve always loved the beginning of spring. I know we celebrate new beginnings around the first of the year, but as spring brightens the world around me, I can finally see what the new year has to offer. I’m filled with expectation and ready to get out in the yard and tend to the things of nature. There’s a spring in my step, if that doesn’t sound too cliché. (Blame the writer in me.)
My time is also filled with new writing projects as well. How I love sitting at my dining room table, typing away while the door leading to the porch is wide open. I hear the birds singing, which is always a treat. The sun is shining and the temperatures are rising. The days are getting longer. As the wind blows, leaves rustle, and I’m reminded of new growth and new possibilities. Does anyone else enjoy the rite of spring?
This Sunday is Easter. More than just a day of bunnies and candy for some folks, it can be a day of reflection. I hope you and your family have a special day together and look forward to the beautiful days to come.
