It’s spring!! Whoo Hoo…happy dance…lalalalllaaalala, oh happy happy……wait…oh no…wait….what’s this? What on earth is this white sprinkling of ice sparkles falling from the sky? Do I dare say it is….SNOWING?! Where is the firey warm orb that shines from the sky that I adore so much and marks springtime? NOOOOOOOOO…..winter…move on…it’s spring…I need my warmth so very much! Sigh……. That darn groundhog…Don’t get me wrong, Punxsutawney Phil is a cutie patootie but….why oh why did he have to see his shadow? Oh well…suck it up buttercup…I’ll survive, it’s better than the alternative but….Spring oh glorious Spring with your warmth and beauty please arrive as soon as you can…I miss you and love you to pieces!
Okay now that I have whined like a child, I will move on…lol….one thing I can say… that no matter what…Spring and Summer are going to be here no matter what, it’s the way of the seasons and I am psyched , not much longer! I love the warm weather, I do appreciate the cold especially when it gets cold enough to kill off the skeeter and tick eggs, etc which helps our summer more delightful, but I am one ready gal for cook outs and walks with the cricket chirping filled evenings….let’s go! J
I am looking forward to May in particular not only is it more beautiful but my son Alex, whom you know by now, will be coming home from being deployed to Afghanistan…thank goodness. On the other hand, my son Rhys, will be leaving for several months to begin his dream as a instructor at Boulder Outdoor Survival School, BOSS, in Boulder ,Utah and of course I will miss him dearly, he is my thoughtful, sweet “baby” and he is traveling so much and exploring that I never know when I am going to see him next. I am happy however, that I do have one son that loves being set in one place and that one placejust happens to be here…yay Max!
Like the seasons changing so are my sons and their lives, as it should be. I am thankful for sons who are motivated, focused and hard working. I’m thrilled that spring is on our horizon and equally thrilled my sons are becoming the men they want to be and are moving in the direction of their dreams…you know…okay…it’s still cold and I’m restless.. but really, it’s all good and I realize now….don’t rush it girl, it’s part of the journey and it’s all fabulous.
