Spring has always brought a time of change for me. It seems like since I’ve moved from home a pretty big event has taken place in the spring. In fact, every time we’ve moved in the past 5 years it’s been in the spring.
I can honestly say I never truly appreciated the beauty of spring until I was in my early twenties. I finally started noticing the beauty spring brings and cherish it each year.
Yesterday as I was driving I looked over and saw green in the field, then looked to the other side and saw a tiny bit more hiding beneath the brown, dead grass of yesterday. When I was playing out front with my kids I noticed the beginning of tiny little buds on our tree.
I love spring! I love the change of weather. I love breathing in the fresh air, walks to the park, and cool evenings outside. I love knowing summer is just around the corner as well.
I look forward to the coming weeks to see the outdoors come alive. A big part of me seems to come alive as well. My step feels a little lighter already. February was the shortest month, but usually one of the longest for me. I think Spring is a beautiful gift from God. He’s showing his miraculous beauty and amazing creation everywhere I turn! I love the motivation I feel as Spring creeps upon us.
What is your favorite part of Spring? What does this time of year remind you of and what do you look forward to as Spring arrives?
