The Waiting Game is Over...

and there are wonderful changes in the weather this week. It feels like spring is in the air. I've put away my winter decorations and tried to spruce things up a little with some spring decorations. It is surely mood lifting to see the sun shine and see the daffodils blooming. I've got a beautiful arrangement on my table and it just brightens up everything.
I'm so grateful for the warmer weather and the longer days. I wish this time of year could last forever but it will be here today and gone tomorrow.
Each season has it's own beauty to offer. The beauty of spring seems to be more vibrant after the darkest coldest days of winter. Time to let Mother nature nurture our souls, to take a deep breath and send the dark and cold of winter packing and along with it the feelings that sometimes plague us during that time. I'm going to give in a little this week to my spring fever. I'm going to let the dishes sit awhile, maybe feed my family take-out, put the laundry off, whatever it takes, to get me out of this house and out there enjoying spring.
A light exist in spring
Not present on the year
At any other period-
When March is scarcely here.
-Emily Dickinson
