MARCHing into Spring!


It's mid-March and the Spring season is definitely making an appearance here in Georgia (although according to the calendar it's not officially Spring yet!). Even though I can truthfully say I enjoy ALL 4 seasons, it's always so nice when our bare trees start displaying buds and blooms--not to mention daffodils popping up in clusters, the forsythia (yellow bell) bushes covered with buttery-yellow blooms, and the birds greeting me with a chirpy concert everytime I'm outside. I LOVE it!! Now that I'm no longer teaching school, I have much more time to appreciate each season--and notice all the "little things" that make each one so special. Not that I didn't enjoy the seasons when my life was hectic, but it is nice now to be able to just stop and breathe in all the signs of Spring! ~ Wherever you live, I wish you a wonderful Spring season--with many reasons to feel renewed and joyful. ~ The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth His handiwork. Psalm 19:1

Greetings CatMom! I eagerly await spring. Winter dumped a heck of a load of snow and ice on us lately so it is hard to even imagine the pleasure of geen leaves and tiny buds spring up! But I look forward because they will!! :)

Hey sweet Susan! I'm so sorry you've had snow and ice recently-ugh. But you are so right--you WILL see those green leaves and tiny buds springing up before you know it! ~ Sending a hug ~ CatMom

This post reminds me of the seasons of our writing life also! After a long winter, I feel I'm coming into spring, BUT every season is beautiful if we slow down enough to enjoy what each one has to offer!
