Goodbye Winter! Hello Spring!

Happy first day of Spring everyone!!!!!

Just have to be honest, I'm so not sad to see Winter go.

There's no denying that this Winter was a hard for me and the whole rest of my family. Winter itself is kind of blah to begin with, but then add walking along side a loved one battling brain cancer and our whole Christmas and Winter season was anything but normal and well..... Winter just plain sucked!

I welcome spring with open arms. Spring is such a time of hope and joy. There's new life in this season. You get that extra hour of daylight. There's flowers blooming and budding all around you. The birds are chirping. The sunglasses come out a little more. Outdoor sports. Kids with lemonade stands. Iced tea. Kids at the park. Pretty spring clothes. Green grass. Warm sun. The slight bite in the air at night. Easter Celebrations.

Truly, what is there not to love about Spring??

It’s like a second chance,
Only it comes back every year
Thus outnumbering
The previous number
Of chances!
It’s just as if there was
A soulmate for every
Living thing,
Every colour,
Every rainbow.

What's your favorite things about Spring??? :)
