I try my best to savor and enjoy each season as it comes. There are things I love about each.
However, all the things I love about winter are frankly getting old.
I love the beauty of the pristine snow after it snows. I love the opportunity to get a little exercise first thing in the morning shoveling the sidewalk on my way to my van to get my bus. I love the way the snow settles on the tree branches and sparkles in the light. I love sledding and snow shoeing and skating and skiing. I love using my “smitten” and taking a walk with my husband hand-in-hand warm inside our mitten for two. I love watching my kids zoom down the hill on sleds in our front yard. I love to see my kids building their snow families and snow forts.
However, winter has been long enough. I’m ready for Spring. I’m ready for flowers and budding trees. I’m ready for mud. Yes. I said it. And I’m ready to put my warm socks and boots and mitts and hats and coats away for awhile. I’m ready to be warm all day long.
So, winter, your turn is over. Let Spring have it’s turn now!
