Spring Is On Its Way. Life is good!
It's funny, when I was young I loved Winter. I would lay in bed at night and wish with all my might for a snow storm. I'm talking the big ones, 36-inches or more. The kind where everybody would stay home from school and work and then spend the entire day outside until their feet went numb. Now, forget it. If it drops below 40-degrees I'm bundled up in three layers of clothing and cursing the weather. I feel like I'm always cold. But Spring is here. You can feel it in the air and see it everywhere. The mornings are still cold but not mitten cold. The birds fill the days with their welcome Spring songs. Every Spring the whole world seems to come come to life again. Daffodils and forsythias are throwing their petals open to catch the warm rays of the sun. The lawns are turning green and the trees are filled with little buds that seem to grow by the minute. I feel rejuvenated. A surge of energy seems to pulse through my veins. It almost makes me want to clean something. Whoa, where'd that come from. I'm outta here before I go and do something crazy.
