Spring, it’s my favorite time of year. The brighter days, the warmer weather, the return of flowers and green … the season works its magic to erode the melancholy Winter has left in its path. I’m not usually one to wax poetic (limericks, I’m told, don’t count) but even I understand that Spring is a season of hope and renewal.
There is a proverb:
No matter how long the winter, spring is sure to follow.
This is as true for life as it is for the seasons. To be honest, I find comfort in this concept, and I’m holding on to this thought with both hands as I push myself forward.
Although, in the spirit of full disclosure, I am equally driven by the words of the incomparable Robin Williams:
Spring is nature’s way of saying, “Let’s party!”
There is always a great deal of wisdom to be found in the words of Robin Williams!
Blessed Ostara to you!
Our version of that in Texas was “if winter comes, can spring be far behind?”
My mother never mentioned how LONG winter would be, though. I’m oh, so ready for spring.
