Goodbye Winter, Hello Spring!

Plump red-breasted robins are hopping on the fence while doves coo at dusk.  Sparrows skitter about, and tender lavender-colored tulips begin to stretch forth from the ground.

There’s still patches of melting snow chunks on the ground, but the grass is green.

Spring is coming!

My heart trembles at the prospect.

It feels as though we’ve been caught in a repeat episode of impermeable gray skies, chilly weather, and weekly snows for too long to remember.

Spring is coming!

The past couple of days have had temperatures surge into the 60’s.  As my son and I ventured out for an afternoon walk, I asked if he wanted his sweat shirt.  He emphatically replied, “No!”

During our walk, my smile brightened when the sun kissed my cheek.  My son’s hand brushed by green shrubs as though he was running his hand through soft-textured fabrics.

Spring is coming!
