I know it is hard to remember how the warmth felt on your arms as you worked in the flower beds. Perhaps even wiping away some sweat as you pulled and tugged on the big sacks of mulch or potting soil.
I can see the signs of that glorious time once more.
The jonquils have been peaking out of the ground for several weeks now. Today on a few of them I can see the swelling of a bud...flowers will come forth in a few weeks.
The past three months have been so long and some days filled with lots of grayness. I am ready for the day to be filled with sunshine, warmth and knowing I can go out in the yard in short sleeves.
Oh, having lived in Oklahoma for practically all my life I know we can have some more cold, wet, blustery days and perhaps even some snow thrown in. Knowing this does not stop me from looking far on the horizon for the days of spring.
In the book of Ecclesiastes we are told there is a season for everything...God, I am ready for the season of spring.
Blessings to all
