I love walking out the door in the morning! The birds are singing at the top of their lungs and because we have soooo many birds in the spring, the noise is joyous!! As if that isn’t enough, the glow of the rising sun makes the catkins on the trees literally bask in the glow! It is the perfect way to start a day and the setting sun casts a warm glow on the budding trees in the back yard to end the day. Spring is the second best time of year for me. The earth is coming alive and you can literally smell life in the air. There are no bugs and mosquitoes yet, and it’s not too hot. It is so exciting when the flowers begin to break ground and poke their heads out of the dirt and the trees set their buds before leafing out. It is a time of renewal and hope and regeneration. Spring motivates me to action after a long difficult winter, and refreshes my spirit in a way that nothing else can.
