beautiful spring, or hopes

spring

Today I am thankful, on this THANKFUL THURSDAY for being able to have all the windows open in my house.  Airing this place out, being able to breathe the air outdoors and getting outside to walk my dog, having the sun pouring over my face.  We have gone through daylight savings time [thanks Ben Franklin ;)] and the sun stays bright in the sky for a longer amount of time now- it doesn’t get dark as early in the day.  It was beautiful outside only the day before yesterday, beautiful enough to be outside in short sleeves and not wearing the long sleeved fleece jacket that I must wear today.  Chazz doesn’t even need a jacket though, he’s just pimpin’ his St. Patti’s Day scarf (b/c its ALWAYS lucky in March!)  Today, as we were strolling down a path in the woods, I noticed a clump of green roots trying to make it’s way up to grow in the sunlight.

Just the thought of spring, the beginning of the warm weather, and being able to enjoy the outside once more, listening to the birds sing beautifully outside (and Taylor Swift) lazily reading a book as a reward for cleaning house all day is wonderful.  How often do we take advantage of the simple things that God bestows upon us.  We won’t even remember this glorious feeling tomorrow through the snow/rain showers, though those green aspiring flowers spotted in the ground during our walk will certainly have forgotten.
