the first time

it happened this morning, around 8:30. i opened the front door and realized that The Girls would not need a coat to go to school! the fierce wind and rain of last night seems to have blown in something warm! hooray, spring! i have my windows open and my heart is happy. ahhhhhhh.

i love the quality of light on a morning with storm remnants in the sky... the bright sunrise light peeking from behind the ominous grey of the clouds... it makes everything seem mystical somehow.

i love watching spring unfold. for me, it's almost like watching God recreate the garden of eden in slow motion. each fat bud, each bluebird carrying twigs, every inch of plant pushing up out of the ground is a miracle.

happy day to you...

I love warm weather! no coats! no coats! though, the tornadoes were unnecessary, don't you think?

After the first sign of spring, I refuse to retreat. Though it was 40 degrees this AM, I stood coat-less at the bus stop. Spring has arrived in my mind and I am not looking back!
