Ah, the first day of spring
I can’t believe it’s the first day of spring! I was awakened early this morning by the sound of rain hitting my bedroom window. As I peered outside, I saw nothing but darkness. What a strange way to welcome in the new season.
Thinking about spring makes me happy. I yearn for sunshine, longer days, and weather in the 70’s. I can’t wait for spring break so our family can relax and unwind from daily life.
As I embrace this new season, I can’t help but notice how time is moving too fast. It seems like yesterday that we were bundled up and taking cover under our umbrellas. And enjoying the comfort of hot soup on a cold evening. And now I’m getting ready to swap my thermal underwear for capris and short sleeve shirts. How can this be?
In an effort to slow down, I’m challenging myself to stop and appreciate what’s in front of me. I know I can’t stop time, but I can make a conscious effort to enjoy every minute.
So happy spring everyone! Let’s enjoy the day.
