Late February and early March are always some of my favorite times of the year. This is that time when you find yourself looking out the window and just sighing… you know it’s coming.
I don’t know what it is about Spring, but I get almost giddy when I see the buds on the trees and the tulips poking through the ground. Easter is easily my second favorite holiday right after Christmas, and, at certain times, it is my favorite. There’s just something very natural to me about thinking of the Savior and remembering His life when you see the world renewed and reborn each Spring. Something special and happy.
Our tulips are about 2 inches tall now, and the daffodils are poking out as well. All the trees on my daily lunch walk are starting to poke the first hints of leaves out, and the grass has perked up a little and greened a lot. It all makes me want to dig my hands deep into the earth and feel the vibrancy of life and growth under my feet.
Yes, it is Spring again, and despite the snow flurries that are surely still to come, you can smell the life in the air.
