Spring has Sprung
Spring brings with it a sense of dreaming. Now matter what task I am working on I find myself day dreaming about the coming days when the weather will become warmer and our time will be spent discovering the adventures of everyday life rather than just hoping to survive through the next day. I anxiously peek into the flower bed to note the progress of the flowering bulbs and my spirit swoons at the traces of purple from the crocuses. The slight wind blows an icy trickle against my cheek but no matter how winter tries to interject it's lingering presence I know its days are limited.
It is just about time to trade in the crochet hook for a shovel and to finally put my hands in the dirt rather than the snow. Soon the days will be filled with sunshine and fresh air and the evenings will be filled with friends and neighbors as everyone begins emerging from their homes. This winter was a tough, cold, snowy one but it makes us all appreciate the little gifts that spring brings us.
