I’m going to risk sounding like a pessimistic you-know-what and just say what I’m thinking…I’ve never been good at keeping my mouth shut anyway.
Today I woke up to the sun shining, the flowers blooming, and the smiling face of my mother. It was so nice to have a second set of hands helping and someone to say “good morning” to. I was excited about putting the horses out without their blankets, and had plans to work in the garden. It was the perfect day.
As I left the barn after feeding the horses, I suddenly got “bummed out.” I didn’t want the flowers to be blooming; I didn’t want the birds to be laying their eggs; I didn’t want it to be time to plant the vegetable garden. No, I wanted to have the anticipation of spring – I wasn’t ready to give up the excitement of what’s to come! I think part of my attitude about not wanting spring to be here is because I know that just as quickly as it came, it will go. I LOVE spring. I love having flowers in the house; I love the crisp, cold mornings that turn into sunshiny, temperate days; I love watching the bulbs push their way through the cold, hard ground – peeking out with a jubilant burst of color. I don’t want that thrill to stop! Silly, I know, but it’s something I’ve been thinking about. Please tell me that it’s not just me who has ever felt this way!
I dressed up the house with some flowers from the garden – I love that! I’m doing everything I can to prolong spring and enjoy it as much as possible!
