Good-Bye Winter...


On this the last day official day of Winter...I bid you, Winter, a healthy Good-bye (!!!) Excuse me if I give you a little shove out the door...feel free to take a Hershey's Coconut Filled Kiss with you...but, this year Winter? I don't really feel like we were friends. I feel more like we kind of struggled with each other while we tried to co-exist together. Usually, I love you..I love to slow down, rest and watch things die to then be reborn in the first breath of Spring. This year though? I felt like I was out of step and struggling from the beginning, and perhaps it was my reluctance to face up to certain things or even let go? Maybe we'll never know...but Spring? Rebirth? I have high hopes for you...

Come in and sit down. Stay a while...lets hold hands and sit in the sun and soak it all up. Let's go on hikes and stop and watch the flowers bloom...Let's carry up that silly laundry basket that has been holding the Easter Eggs I accidentally forgot to put away (and has been sitting waiting for this moment for an entire year already...giggle) Spring? I have been feeling the subtle shift already and welcome you with open arms...

Let's play Spring...

What a sweet post. I'm ready to make friends with Winter as long as he's willing to play Spring with me too.
