Spring is here! Not only does the calendar say it, but so does the weather. For most of us who are in the northern Midwest Spring coming is a great sign. This year Spring seems to be showing up a little bit earlier than usual. It was still Winter when we hit 80 degrees. What that means for the rest of the season and the seasons to follow, I haven’t a clue. What I do know is that I love Spring! Next to Fall, Spring is my other favorite season.
It is a season the brings new growth, hope, warmth, and beauty. Just watching all the green begin to pop everywhere around me is refreshing. I now have flowers that are getting ready to bloom and my chives are nearly a foot tall already! But I love it. As I am writing this post I am sitting on my patio, listening to some of my favorite tunes and soaking up the sun. I like to feel the warmth of the sun wash over me. It brings in a sense of calm.
Seeing the plants beginning to push through the newly thawed ground and blooms starting to grow makes me remember. I remember that we too go through a continual growth and blossom period. Those plants work hard to push through the dirt, striving to feel the warmth of the sun shine down them. Through life’s daily stresses, struggles, worries and frustration we need to push through to find our warmth, to find our sunshine.
What brings you warmth? Where does your sunshine come from?
