It is Spring in Georgia. This time I’m sure of it.
The trees surrounding our house are opening their new delicate light green leaves ever so slightly. The daffodils are bending low and seem quite tired. Our Japanese Maples are showing off their new red cloaks.
Birds are chirping their hellos, “I’m back!”, with friendly but worldly sounds. We have seen our very first Hummingbird of the season! The feeder is hanging ready to attract any more newcomers.
It has been a very long winter in so many ways. The weather has been abysmal. So much rain, no snow, no ice storms and just grey sad days. Everyone has said so and so it must be true. Generally, I love grey days when nothing has to be accomplished but this year it was the norm. Glad to see them go.
Spring is a new beginning to be sure. A new baby has joined our family. Love gained for others and, perhaps, love lost. I can’t help thinking that this year will be a new beginning. I’m counting on it. My ‘to do’ list is long so I tell myself to STOP OVERTHINKING and get on with life wherever it takes me and whatever it throws my way.
Spring fever! A relationship expert, April Masini, writes that “spring is still for humans what it is for animals: a time to get out there and meet potential mates.” Interesting. You singles?! Do you hear? No matter what your age, love may be near. It is fleeting so don’t take it for granted. Treat it with respect. It is a gift.
So many of us have been housebound for months and now we want to go out into the warmer air. Walk the beach, the Boardwalk or the Park with our face towards the sun. Feel the warmth and the love surrounding us.
Our questions and disappointments from yesterday and our fears of tomorrow must be put aside while we enjoy what is happening right before us. It is not always clear. But…
“Don’t wait for someone to bring you flowers.
Plant your own garden and decorate your own soul”
HAPPY SPRING READERS!
